CHAPTER IV
PUBLIC LATTERS 1850-1852

the other side of the Channel may indeed show our enmity, but neither our wisdom nor our strength. Outcries against perjury are natural and rational ; but when they are raised against Louis Napoleon, they are quite as likely to wound the other princes. His perjuries, far from excluding him, place him among the legitimate sovrans of the highest order, of whom not a single one, excepting the Emperor of Russia, is guiltless of this crime against his people, God's vicar taking the precedency. Louis Napoleon is not only the hereditary successor of his uncle, but the grand referendary and representative of the French nation. I forget how many above a dozen oaths Talleyrand vaunted that he had broken; his survivors broke all these, and many since. Absolution was necessary, and Catholicism was necessary for absolution. Behold then on what a broad basis the religion of our fathers is set up again !
It is our duty, no less than our interest, to abstain from interference in the domestic affairs of France. I regret, as there are many who do, the vehement attacks made by the powerful engine of the Times on the chief magistrate of that country, whose offences lie elsewhere, and not against us, at present. I admire the magnificent instrument sounding throughout Europe from our highest organ-loft, and only wish the trumpet stop was heard less often.

Landor's reply, which appeared in the Examiner of November 13, was as follows :-
