Shar1ng the belief that D1derot is too much neglected in America and particularly by historians, I hoped to share some part of Mr. Roth's masterpiece with those who read only English. I further hoped to draw from certain letters selected for translat1on, some conclusions valuable from a historical point of v1ew. I soon found out that to do a good job of interpreting certain letters 1n this ed1t1on would requ1re research and scholarship far beyond the scope of a senior independent project at Kalamazoo College. I will be satisfied w1th my work, however, 1f I only help 1n some small way to bring attention f1rst to Denis Diderot and secondly to the vast storehouse of 1nformation in Georges Roth's edition of D1derot's correspondence.
