Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours wrote this essay at the suggestion of Thomas Jefferson. When it was completed in August of 1800, a copy was sent to Thomas Jefferson for comment and corrections. Jefferson kept the manuscript for fifteen years before turning his attention to it in the spring of 1816. Du Pont de Nemours died in August of 1817 while Jefferson's associate, the Virginia attorney Francis Walker Gilmer (1790-1826), was translating the manuscript into English. At any rate, the original copy sent to Jefferson and Gilmer's translation have never been located. This copy was acquired by Pierre Samuel du Pont (1870-1954) from a granddaughter of Robert Maskell Patterson (1787-1854). Patterson was a former president of the American Philosophical Society. Du Pont de Nemours sent him a copy of his treatise on education in 1812.

Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours was born in Paris in 1739. After being apprenticed to a watchmaker, he began writing on economic matters. His first major work was on the grain trade in which he argued for a relaxation on government regulation. By 1763 he had become identified with the Physiocrats which brought him to the attention of Minister Turgot. In 1774 he was commissioned Inspecteur Général du Commerce. He played a major role in negotiating the Anglo-French Commercial Treaty of 1786. During the French Revolution du Pont was identified with the moderate Girondists. In 1789 he was elected to the Constitutent Assembly and took the Tennis Court Oath. However, during the period of Jacobin ascendancy he was imprisoned. In 1799 he and his family emigrated to America. After visiting Thomas Jefferson in Washington, D.C., Du Pont de Nemours and his son Eleuthére Irénée selected a site on the banks of the Brandywine River in Delaware to establish a black powder manufactory. Between 1805 and 1815 he lived in France where he served in a number of political and diplomatic positions. Upon the return of Napoleon from Elba he once again left France for America.

Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours was born in Paris on December 14, 1739. He was apprenticed as a watchmaker, but during the early 1760s he began to study and write on economic matters, and in 1767 coined the term Physiocracy, which means the rule of nature, to describe the complex doctrine of François Quesnay, which is now recognized as the first modern school of economics.

In July 1774, the family departed for Poland, where Du Pont was to serve the Polish monarch in various capacities, including that of honorary councilor. He was shortly recalled to France, however, and commissioned as Inspecteur Général du Commerce, a position he held until its abolition in 1788. During the late 1770s he was an economic advisor to Jacques Necker, and in the early 1780s he was involved in the negotiations which led to the Anglo-French Commercial Treaty of 1786. In 1786 he was appointed Counseiller d'Etat by Louis XVI, and the next year he served as secretary of the first Assemblée des Notables convened at Versailles. He also served as a member of the Assemblée Nationale Constituante (1789-1791), where he allied himself with the moderate Girondist faction. After Robespierre took power, Du Pont was arrested in July 1794, but he escaped the guillotine upon Robespierre's fall at the end of the month. In 1795 he was chosen as a member of the Counseil des Anciens. Following the coup d'état of September 4, 1795, he was again arrested and held for one night.

The du Ponts began to explore the possibility of emigration to the United States. On January 3, 1800, accompanied by his sons, Victor and Eleuthère Irénée, he arrived in America. Du Pont de Nemours and his sons established the commission house of Du Pont de Nemours, Père et Fils & Cie. in New York.

Du Pont de Nemours and his wife returned to France in 1802, and he held various government posts under Napoleon. In 1814 he became a member of the provisional government which deposed Napoleon and exiled him to Elba. Upon Napoleon's return, Du Pont de Nemours again fled to America, where he died at the home of his son, Eleuthère Irénée in Delaware on August 7, 1817.
