Seite 6 - and my desire again to see my country free, which I have been prevented doing by foreign invaders.
Seite 109 - President of the Republic. The citizens are enjoined to withhold their obedience. The executive power has passed in full right to the National Assembly. The Judges of the High Court of Justice are enjoined to meet immediately, under pain of forfeiture, to proceed to the judgment of the President and his accomplices...
Seite 52 - I liv without enjoyments, but also without remorse ; and every evening I go to repose in peace. No steps would have been taken by me to disturb the calm of my conscience and the repose of my life, ha*d not my father signified an earnest desire of having me near him again during his declining years. My filial duty roused me from a state of resignation, and I took a step of...
Seite 75 - ... imperial family, against whom the amendment was particularly directed, had come forward, and from the tribune protested his devotion to the Republic. This opened the way to the Prince himself, who said " that he was too grateful to the nation for restoring him to his rights as a citizen to have any other ambition.

Seite 108 - Who then were these representatives assembled at the Mairie of the 10th arrondissement, and what did they do there ? Every shade of opinion was represented in this extemporaneous Assembly ; — but eight-tenths of its members belonged to the different Conservative parties which had constituted the majority. This Assembly was presided over by two of its Vice-Presidents, M.
Seite 124 - Proclamation of the ond of December, when I loyally explained to you what, according to my ideas, were the vital conditions of Government in France, I had not the pretension, so common in these days, of substituting a personal theory for the experience of centuries. On the contrary, I sought in the past the examples that might best be followed, what men had given them, and what benefits had resulted. I have thought it rational (logique), to prefer the precepts of genius to the specious doctrines...
Seite 54 - My desire to see my father once more in this world made me attempt the boldest enterprise I ever engaged in. It required more resolution and courage on my part than at Strasburg and Boulogne ; for I was determined not to submit to the ridicule which attaches to those who are arrested escaping under a disguise, and a failure I could not have endured.
