4150. JOSEPH II., Innovations.—

Weighing the fondness of the Emperor for innovation,
against his want of perseverance, it is
difficult to calculate what he will do with his discontented
subjects in Brabant and Flanders. If
those provinces alone were concerned he would
probably give them back; but this would induce
an opposition to his plan in all his other dominions.—
John Jay. Washington ed. ii, 158.
(P. 1787)
