CHAPTER V
PUBLIC LATTERS 1853-1855

England, France, and Russia.
SIR,
It appears that the Emperor of Russia has at last executed his threat to invade the Turkish dominions. That such an aggression is contrary to his treaties, not only with Turkey, but with all the high powers of Europe, is acknowledged universally. The press in France and England condemns it no less as unjust and insolent, than dangerous to the freedom of other states. A general confederacy of them all would have been politic and justifiable long ago, on ground equally tenable. England has been perfidiously supplanted by the Tzar in the Court of Persia, and his influence has been active and sinister in Cabul and Afghanistan. The city and fortress of Herat felt it recently. We shall never be secure in the Punjab or Scinde until what is called Independent Tartary is really and effectually what at present it is only in the map. Persia is aware of this, and her jealousy of Turkey is turned against a Power more encroaching and more formidable. Omar and Ali join hands against it, and the King is supporter of the hhalif. No other question but this momentous one could unite France and England. On this their honour and their interests are at stake. Happily, since war is unavoidable and peace disgraceful, the expenditure of money and force can safely be moderate. France can well employ a few hundreds of her officers in disciplining the Turkish levies; and England has need only to supply as much of arms and ammunition as will cost her less than her disbursements amounted to in a single month of her last hostilities against France. Russia is the most vulnerable of European Empires. Surely the two greatest and the least vulnerable will not omit the opportunity of lessening at once her dominions and her injustice. 'vVe are more aggrieved than France is : Austria is more aggrieved than we. Shiploads of stones, beside ballast, have been cast year after year into that mouth of the Danube which Russia was bound by treaty to keep open. This is injurious to the agriculture and commerce of all the provinces on the borders of that river, and especially of Hungary. It forces us into Odessa for grain, and largely increases the rate of tonnage and the delay of supplies. With small aid from the united fleets of France and England, would Turkey be enabled to repossess her territory as far as to the borders of the Phasis. The Circassians, the
