Argues that a pamphlet of 1717, entitled 'A Curious Little Oration . . . Translated from the Fourth Edition of the French, by Dan. De F-e', was not, as implied by the bibliographer J.R. Moore an original production by Defoe. Cites the existence in the Bodleian Library of a brief undated tract in French which corresponds closely, and in places word for word, with the Curious Little Oration.
