CHAPTER II
PUBLIC LATTERS 1843-1847

that princes should be punished : certainly it is, if Ministers are responsible : if not, what is to be done? Are no boundaries to be fixed to the licence of power and to the sufferings of humanity? But my language, it appears, was " rather strong." Wiser and greater men have formerly used, in behalf of the same people, much stronger language against more elevated potentates. They certainly never were censured for it ; but, on the contrary, have been recommended both for their sentiments and for their expression of them ; and they continue to be exhibited in admonitory contrast with the declamation and verbosity we are accustomed to hear from the sycophants and revilers of disgusted kings, the itinerant orators of the human race, the Clootzes, continental and insular. I wish at all times to say what is requisite, and never more. It is needless to add that I would not willingly undertake what must be unsuccessful. But I venture to entertain the hope, whatever may be the defects of my language, whether too strong or too weak, that it will not be uttered in vain. For not only in former ages, and in the country whose cause I am pleading, but likewise in our own days, and in more than one other country, unworthy and unprofitable princes, although they neither were nor could 'be oppressors, have been thrust aside. Europe never saw, contemporaneously, two Sovereigns so well adapted to the period and the people as the Emperor Nicholas and King Louis Philippe. Their courage and firmness have established them on thrones from which it was requisite, for the honour and happiness of their nations, to remove the legitimate heirs. Is it then probable that these potentates, the most sagacious that ever governed their respective countries, who excluded the unworthy of their own houses, should hesitate, if necessary, to wave away from Greece a far more unworthy alien ? Perhaps it may be humane in them to wait until he relapses into his insanity. Nothing can they discover in Otho but a thriftless scion, not only not producing the fruits that were expected from it, but exhausting and corrupting the whole branch on which in an evil hour it was engrafted.
Ulterior steps must be taken for the maintenance and security of what has been achieved. The Powers adjacent to Greece are Turkey, Austria, and England.
