On my ai rival in the United States 1 hoped to find a latior from you. 1 own that your ohplea-ure g ievtd me; kt owing, as I do, your good feme and j ur kindness, it surprised me. Indeed, uncle, my concuot must have teca strangely misrepresented ti you before you could have been lndused to repel as enemies the men who sacrificed themselves for the Empire. If, having suocceded at Strasbourg (aid I very nearly did so;, I htd marched on Paris, followed by a people fascinated ?y the reeolleo tions ot the empire, and, arriving in tbe espi al as Pre tender, 1 had seized the government, then to disavow me and to bieak with me migbt have have ocen nobie and msgnanimous. But when I at empt one ot the bold en terprise* which alone eould bring balk what twenty years ot p?ace have effaoec : when I offer to it the sacri fice of my life, persuaded that even my death would be ot use to our cause; when agaioat my will 1 escape from the bayonet and the scaffold to a foreign shore, I fin* thue only con empt and dkdain en tbe part of say fa mily.

I know y< u too weil, dear uncle, to foubt your affec tiou and not to bope ina' you will in liuo Ao justice to me, and to others *lii have compromised themselves for our cause. As tor me, however you may treat me, my be haviour will not alter; the general evmpatby, the tranqui lity ot my c< nthitnee, and ub>ve all, the persuasion that if ibe 1 nuo.or looks do?n on me, he approves me? these are the ccrsideiations which comwusate for the many moitificatlons and it Juries which I have eudarad.
