A Dialogue Between George the Third of Great-Britain and his Ministers was a remarkable early anti-Shaker diatribe. Published in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1782, it is found appended to only one of the ten known or presumed editions of Valentine Rathbun’s famous Some Brief Hints on a Religious Scheme, a bitter attack of Shakerism that was first published in 1781. An original copy of this rare Worcester edition is held by the Hamilton College Library as a part of its Communal Societies Collection. It is an obscure work, rarely cited, and never before made available to the academic community. It is reproduced here in its entirety.
