Notes: A scarce treatise on the benefits of toleration, both in religion and in statecraft. As well as a chapter on toleration itself, there are others on zeal, fanaticism, and 2 devoted to Islam. The peroration is a quotation from l'Abbé Fleury's Ecclesiastical History, where he declares 'que rien n'a plus décrié la religion que la rigeur des certains ministres contre les hérétiques & le excommuniés.' WorldCat records 2 copies in the US, The Clark, and UCD (imperfect).
