|Notes:||"There is a sort of enthusiasm in public spirit which renders it politically prudent in corrupt statesmen to discourage it, and yet there is something so great and so divine in this enthusiasm, that statesmen of a better turn, though they dare not encourage, yet cannot but admire it. We have a shining and surprising example of this in the Cobler of Mesina, which happened in the last century ..." In the form of a parable, the Enthusiastic patriot tells the story of an honest man who, seeing corruption, unpunished crimes, and oppression, turns vigilante and commits fifty murders to avenge the innocent.
Evans supplies the imprint [New York: 1769]. However, the American Antiquarian Society copy bears the ms. date 1774.
