A voluminous collection of political letters between Mr. Stepney, the British minister, and our ambassadors at various European courts, the Duke of Marlborough, and other public characters of the time. Part of the correspondence is in the British Museum, and part in the Public Record Office. It is very valuable, as this was the period called the Seven Years War. The original letters are preserved in bound volumes, but the whole correspondence is in print also. (Between 1692 and 1706.)
