3176. FRANCE, Restoration of.—[further continued].

In the desolation of Europe,
to gratify the atrocious caprices of
Bonaparte, France sinned much; but she has
suffered more than retaliation. Once relieved
from the incubus of her late oppression,
she will rise like a giant from her slumbers.
Her soil and climate, her arts and
eminent sciences, her central position and free
constitution, will soon make her greater than
she ever was.—
To M. de Neuville, Washington ed. vii, 109.
(M. 1818)
