Voltaire: Discourse Addressed to the Welsh, v.1, 5 September 2008.

François-Marie Arouet de Voltaire (1694–1778)
Discourse Addressed to the Welsh
Discours aux Welches (1764)
Extracted from Voltaire, The Works of Voltaire: A Contemporary Version. Volume: 37.
Translated by William F. Fleming.
Publisher: E. R. DuMont.
(Paris.1901)

Can it be that the great Voltaire deigned to address the Welsh?
Not really. He is playing on a pun between Galles (Wales) and Gaul/Gallia (France) and actually addressing his fellow French citizens.
