19th Century Sheet Music Project (University of North Carolina) has a music sheet of "Rousseau's Dream", showing us its images. Here's the description:

Rousseau, Jean-Jacques
Rousseau's dream, arr. piano
"Rousseau's dream. An air with variations for the piano forte. Composed
& dedicated to the Countess of Delaware by J.B. Cramer."
Price: 75 cents
Cover design
7 p.

"Philadelphia. Published and sold at G: Willig's Musical Magazine No. 171

Musically, this tune (without words) seems to be related with "Aunt Rhody."
