CHAPTER I
PUBLIC LATTERS 1838-1840

Philippe as under Buonaparte, and conducted by men whom both in turn have stigmatised, to abandon to its fate that glorious nation to which France owed a great part of her victories both in spaiu and Germany. But it never was incumbent on us to advance in the cause of Poland, otherwise than with appeals to the sanctity of treaties. The expense must have been great, the success uncertain. For never will our nation and France co-operate long together with cordiality. She thinks we would cheat her because we look gravely and earnestly at her ; and we will not drink her wines because they sparkle.
But we may act by ourselves, and without any reference to her, in regard to Russia, although the French people and soldiery would simultaneously cry out for war against their conqueror at the first cannon fired. We may act in regard to Russia as Russia has been acting in regard to us. Furthermore, we may do lawfully and rightly what she has been doing disloyally and traitorously. We may secure the Turkish empire by aiding the Circassians; and we can do it effectually by no other means. Our great object, we at last are made sensible, is to establish our preponderance in Persia : and this also is to be done by it, and alone by it. Long before the present day, we ought to have had a fleet in the Euxine. All that the Circassians want from us may be supplied at a less expenditure than a single month's in the last war. Russia would not openly resent it : she could not : she has the gout in one leg for five months in the year, and cannot limp up to us with the other: we are beyond the reach of her snow-balls. She knows that she extorted from Turkey a nominal thing, and that she has vainly attempted to found a real one on it. Turkey did not, either at the commencement or close of the war, or at any time previously, occupy Circassia. She neither had troops nor civilians in that country. She was about as much the sovran of Circassia as George the Third was sovran of France : not indeed quite so much ; for he at least held France upon his coins. Neither of them could cede more than the title. George the Third, who was always ready to warm his hands at a war, would not, however, have engaged in hostilities with Russia, for having carried stores and munition into his kingdom of France : neither do I conceive that Russia will deem it expedient to engage in hostilities with us, for aiding to this extent a nation not even in
