Seite 8 - answered Napoleon, fiercely. " Abandon Holland ? sooner yield it back to the sea. Counsellors, there must be an impulse given — all must march — You are fathers of families, the heads of the nation ; it is for you to set the example. They speak of peace ; I hear of nothing but peace, when all around should echo to the cry of war.
Seite 367 - The word additional disenchanted the friends of liberty. They recognised in it the ill-disguised continuation of the chief institutions created in favour of absolute power. From that moment Napoleon to their view became an incurable despot, and I, for my part, regarded him in the light of a madman delivered, bound hand and foot, to the mercy of Europe.
Seite 336 - May, 1814, and the dispositions sanctioned by that treaty, and those which they have resolved on, or shall hereafter resolve on, to complete and to consolidate it, they will employ all their means, and...
