5055. MARIE ANTOINETTE, Reform.—

The exhaustion of the treasury called into action the reforming hand of the nation; and
her opposition to it, her inflexible perverseness
and dauntless spirit, led herself to the guillotine,
drew the King on with her, and plunged the
world into crimes and calamities which will
forever stain the pages of modern history.—
