CHAPTER II
PUBLIC LATTERS 1843-1847

honour is concerned in the administration of a government we assisted in imposing. It has been demonstrated to Parliament by the principal men of both parties that King Otho has failed in his engagements, both to his people and his protectors. Having thus failed, my question is, whether he has not forfeited all right to, assistance from the one, and to allegiance from the other.
In their insurrection against the Turks greatly more than half the male population, between the ages of twenty and forty, had been slain. No nation since the light of Christianity has beamed on the world had suffered so severely, at least in Europe. The Turkish authorities, we are informed by Lord Palmerston, had determined on carrying off the whole of the people, and on transporting to Africa and selling into slavery all who escaped the sword. What his Lordship calls a civil war had been raging from 1820 to 1826, and he tells us "it was devastating the whole face of the Morea." Ay ! indeed, it was devastating a little more than the beauty-spots of the face; it was exhausting the heart itself of the last blood within it. And so we suffered six whole years to elapse, tame lookers-on !
And when the six years had elapsed, what did we? Doubtless we repaid the scattered and homeless children of Greece an instalment of the debt so long due to their ancestors for instruction in our best literature; doubtless we ensured to them protection in their cottages or their caves, for all our refinements in the arts, for the statues in our halls, and even for the lamps that light them. We promised them this, indeed, and more ; we promised them exemption from the sword and slavery, we promised them free institutions. And what was done? A young prince, who probably had never heard of Greece until he was called up by his tutor to govern her, a creature of a character even more imbecile and fantastical than his father, is erected into the tutelary deity of Greece ! Even under the Turks municipal rights, the best part of all Governments, Royal or Republican, were respected ; but under this doll, which the people were commanded to kiss and cuddle, no vestige of them is remaining. As for taxation, King Otho squanders in one year a greater sum than entered the Treasury at Constantinople in two ; and all this is extorted from a population diminished by half since the incursion of the Mahomedans.
