A CRITICISM ON THi HISTORY OF FROISSART, J HAVE laid before you the views with which Froiffart wrote his Chronicles, the care he took to be informed of all the events which were to make parts of them, and the rules he had impofed on hinjjfelf in writing them. J fh^ll at prefent examine if he has beep exa& in obferving thefe rules ; what are jthe defeâs and advantages of his Hiilory ; what is ,the form and ftyle of it. Thence I ihall.pafs to the jaianufcripts and editions we have qf it, and to the abridgements and different tranflations which have been publiihed. Froiffart is accufed of jrartjality ; and this accufajtion is become fo general, that it feems to have acquired the chara&er of notoriety j whofe privilege is to fuperfede proofs, froiffart is laid to have fold his pen to the Englifli, wljo paid him a confiderable penfion ; and, by a necefiary confequence of his affeâion foj: ..them, he is unfavourably to tj^e $rench?
