CHAPTER V
PUBLIC LATTERS 1853-1855

blast of war. All parties are angry with the King of Prussia for keeping aloof from it. Little as I respect his Majesty, I think him as prudent and as honest a man as any of the other Majesties round about. Personal and private affections and disaffections ought never to warp the throne; but what throne do they not warp ? Such is the material ; and it is easier to cast it aside than to change its nature. The King of Prussia has gone more straightforward than his rival, the Emperor of Austria ; he has not deceived us, and will not; the other has, and will. The King of Prussia owes it as a duty to his subjects to abstain from hostilities. If he is forced into them, it will not be against Russia. But let him beware of attempting to cajole the worst or the most potent ruler in the universe, him who holds the Keys of Janus in his hand, and on whose alms our famished soldiers have depended for existence. The famishers of them still direct the councils of our Sovereign, shifting from shoulder to shoulder the blame and responsibility of their misdeeds. Such men are as incapable of ensuring an honourable peace as of conducting a successful war. Let not our eyes be turned toward the Continent for objects of reproach, but toward those nearer us, on the upper seats, awaiting condign and exemplary punishment too long delayed.
