He was discharged at Portsmouth, England in December 1791. In 1792, he published The Soldier's Friend, a critique of the army, which resulted in his fleeing to France, landing in the middle of the French Revolution. He then sailed for America in September 1792. By 1793, he was in Philadelphia teaching English to Frenchmen and doing some translations. He published a number of pro-British pamphlets under the pseudonym of Peter Porcupine. In 1800, he returned to England and edited Cobbett's Political Register. His Parliamentary Debates were later taken over by Hansard. He returned to America in 1817 and spent two years there before returning to England His Rural Rides (1830), became his most famous work and depicted rides through the various counties of England. In 1832, he was elected MP for Oldham. His other works include Cobbett's Parliamentary History of England *1806), Advice to Young Men.... (1829), The Poor Man's Friend (1829) and The Life of Andrew Jackson (1834).
