CHAPTER II
PUBLIC LATTERS 1843-1847

The Revolution at Athens.
Sir.,
The two letters you have done me the favour to insert in the Examine,- were not intended to arouse the animosity or the courage of the Greeks, for which indeed there was no necessity, but to prepare the public mind, in England and upon the Continent, for the great event so happily accomplished.
The deliverance of that nation from insupportable tyranny was accelerated by the very means employed by King Otho to retard it. So true is the Iambic in the Fragments of Euripides,
" Otande Daimon andri porsini kaka
Ton noun eblase proton.

Which Erasmus has turned into a Latin verse, and the quoters have turned out again:
" Quos Jupiter vult perdere dementat prius."

But this is no half-holiday of "play for" criticism. To Greece again, if you please, and rather the present than the ancient one.
Military commissions, with every lawless engine of arbitrary power, were about to be established in all quarters of the country. Sword, imprisonment, free-quarters, torture, were in readiness to put down opposition, to stifle inquiry : in short, to reduce the most enduring of nations to a worse slavery than Turk, or Albanian, or Egyptian ever imposed. The exciting shock given at Athens was felt simultaneously at the extremities of the land, and signals shone from Hymettus to Malea. Retaliation for the most intolerable injuries never entered the brave open heart of the plundered villager or the disbanded soldier. The one was contented to have suffered scorn and indigence, the other to have bled profusely for his country.
I promised you that my third letter should be my last in exposing the iniquities of Otho. For I knew well enough that a period was about to be placed to them, although I knew not precisely the day. Permit me, sir, through the Examiner, to make an appeal to the generosity and justice both of England and of France; submitting to the Ministers and Legislature of each country, whether it would be proper and honourable to exact from the people of Greece repayment
