904. BONAPARTE (N.), Vanquished.—[continued].

On the general scale of
nations, the greatest wonder is Napoleon at
St. Helena; and yet it would have been well
for the lives and happiness of millions and
millions, had he been deposited there twenty
years ago. France would now have a free
government, unstained by the enormities she
has enabled him to commit on the rest of the
world, and unprostrated by the vindictive
hand, human or divine, now so heavily bearing
upon her.—
To Mrs. Trist. D. L. J.363.
April. 1816)
