CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

do; and, if there are inequalities and impediments in the way, to remove as many as by foresight and zeal and labour are removable. At all events I think it hard to grudge the Hungarians their ancient birthright ; a birthright more ancient, more regular, more continuous than ours, more frequently assailed and more valiantly defended. Harder still is it to reproach and malign them for employing those methods of recovering it to which we ourselves in like circumstances should recur : seeing, as we do, broken promises thrown back in their faces the very hour they were made, after the dust of ancient oaths had been blown with derision into their eyes, and they had borne it.
Improperly are so many words of mine a preface to so trivial a donation as I offer. It is only intended as an aid to a few brave Hungarians now in England, who want the means of returning to their country. The truest, the most generous, the most energetick of philanthropists, Lord Dudley Stuart, thinks, with many other judicious men, that subscriptions for aiding the nation in its righteous cause should follow great publick meetings.

If the Hungarians should be able to resist, for three months longer, the numerous and formidable hordes surrounding them ; and if the French Government should abstain from two declarations -the first, that it will assist them ; the second, that its interests and honour require their suppression-we may confidently hope for their ultimate success. That the French will secretly encourage them in hostilities, for the purpose of exhausting their resources, is probable enough, and that they will afford but a negative aid to the Austrians and Russians. Such aid, morally, they have given already ; and two such declarations they have made in regard to
