The Rights of Man, by Thomas Paine


Being an answer to Mr. Burke's attack on the French Revolution

George Washington

President Of The United States Of America


I present you a small treatise in defence of those principles of freedom which your exemplary virtue hath so eminently contributed to establish. That the Rights of Man may become as universal as your benevolence can wish, and that you may enjoy the happiness of seeing the New World regenerate the Old, is the prayer of


Your much obliged, and

Obedient humble Servant,

Thomas Paine
