John Bradford, editor of the Kentucky Gazette, publishes Charlotte's translation of a text probably by Gabriel Sénac de Meilhan on the fate of aristocrats who fled the French Revolution for Germany, England, and elsewhere. It bears the title Voyages, Adventures and Situation of the French Emigrants and appears in 1800. In her Introduction to the work, and in footnotes and subtle alterations of the text, Charlotte takes a feminist stand, alludes to her own experience in Gallipolis, and argues that the Revolution has suffered unjust criticism. She castigates Marie Antoinette, Louis XVI, and the Count of Artois, even though the latter had been Edme Mentelle's patron. Bradford in the Kentucky Gazette likewise maintains a pro-French position.

Keywords:   Charlotte Mentelle, John Bradford, Gabriel Sénac de Meilhan, Marie Antoinette, Louis XVI, Count of Artois, French Revolution
