PUBLIC LATTERS 1853-1855

What could half a dozen imbecile kings do for him ?What could half the number of enthusiastic nations not do? He has only to speak the word, and there they are. I have often seen him, often have enjoyed the wisdom of his conversation : I have no such hopes or wishes for the future ; but I do wish, I do hope, I do confidently believe, that he will regenerate his own people and all those around ; and that he will be more powerful because more prudent and more equitable, than any of his predecessors.

Things will go on pretty nearly as they did before, and will soon become identically the same. Meanwhile, hopes will be holden out of a
