The first 200 words of this essay...

Imagine that you are writing a study of Paris during the Terror. In the form of a short essay (not more than 900 words) consider the following three questions:

1. What kind of primary source is this and what strengths and weaknesses does it have?

2. Are there any particular words and phrase in the document that require elucidation or special comment before you can make use of it?

3. What can you learn from this source with respect to Paris and the Terror? You should distinguish, where appropriate, between witting and unwitting testimony.

This document in its original form as a speech is an unpublished document. However, because it has been translated and printed as a part of a book, it is now a published document.
