Re: Sir John Sinclair's History of the Revenue.

Dear John:
"The History of the Public Revenue of the British Empire"
by Sir John Sinclair, Baronet M.P. London, 1785, 1790 and 1803.

It is in 3 volumes.   I own a reprint by Kelly Publishers, New York, 1966 in
their Reprints of Economic Classics series

Generally, anything with John Sinclair as author will be our Sir John
Sinclair of Ulbster ancestor of  the current Lord Thurso whose name is also
John.  He, the modern John,  is a newly elected MP and thus follows in the
footsteps of Sir John and indeed his Grandfather, Archibald who was Minister
for Air in Churchill's war cabinet and was made the first Viscount Thurso.

Sir John was indefatiguable and wrote and published something almost every
day of his adult life.
