Somersett is a narrative history of the secret plan of Benjamin Franklin, working with friends in London, to incite the American Revolution through political motivation of the colonies.

Benjamin Franklin, frustrated with the recalcitrance of the British proprietors of Pennsylvania regarding defense and financial support of the colony, conspired with friends in London, utilizing two major political events, to incite the thirteen colonies to revolution. This is the story of that plot, Franklin’s role in London, Philadelphia, and Paris, and the conspirators in London who successfully brought it to completion.
