The “Thoughts of Cicero on the Following Subjects”, translated from the writings of Pierre-Joseph Thoulier d’Olivet (1682-1768), was published in London by printers John Newbery and one R. Griffiths. After a short translator’s note, the text outlines Cicero’s outlook on subjects such as religion, man, conscience, and more. The text is entirely published in English.

Cicero’s thoughts include religion, man, conscience, the passions, wisdom, probity, eloquence, friendship, old age, death, Scipio’s dream, and miscellaneous thoughts. This text was printed for both educational and everyday use, explicitly being recommended to men, women, and youth.
