880. BONAPARTE (N.), Promises of.—

Promises cost him nothing when they could
serve his purpose. On his return from Elba,
what did he not promise? But those who had
credited them a little, soon saw their total insignificance,
and, satisfied that they could
not fall under worse hands, refused every effort
after the defeat of Waterloo.—
To Benjamin Austin. Washington ed. vi, 554. Ford ed., x, II.
(M. 1816)
