883. BONAPARTE (N.), Restoration of.

—You despair of your country, and so do
I. A military despotism is now fixed upon it
permanently, especially if the son of the tyrant
should have virtues and talents. What
a treat it would be to me, to be with you, and
to learn from you all the intrigues, apostacies
and treacheries which have produced this last
death's blow to the hopes of France. For, although
not in the will, there was in the imbecility
of the Bourbons a foundation of
hope that the patriots of France might obtain
a moderate representative government.—
To M. Dupont de Nemours. Washington ed. vi, 457.
(M. May. 1815)
