in consequence of the missive, Did Sheridan invent the term?, penned by Skylar B
According to my edition of Bewer' Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, the French phrase Mal a Pros was the inspiration for Sheriden's name for his crazed character.
The phrase had been in use in Elnglad from the late 1660s.
