7318. REPUBLIC (French), Future.—

France will yet attain representative government.
You observe it makes the basis of
every constitution which has been demanded
or offered,—of that demanded by their Senate;
of that offered by Bonaparte; and of that
granted by Louis XVIII. The idea, then, is
rooted, and will be established, although
rivers of blood may yet flow between them
and their object.—
To John Adams. Washington ed. vi, 525.
(M. 1816)
