884. BONAPARTE (N.), Rights of Nations and.—

The new treaty of the allied
powers declares that the French nation shall
not have Bonaparte, and shall have Louis
XVIII. for their ruler. They are all then as
great rascals as Bonaparte himself. While he
was in the wrong, I wished him exactly as
much success as would answer our purposes,
and no more. Now that they are in the
wrong and he in the right, he shall have all
my prayers for success, and that he may dethrone
every man of them.—
To Thomas Leiper. Washington ed. vi, 467. Ford ed., ix, 522.
(M. June. 1815)
