Letter addressed to the Count of Montfort, Jerome Bonaparte about the press. 2 pages and a half in-8. Numerous erasures and redacted words.
"My Lord, I beg your Royal Highness to be well persuaded that if she had passed through Lintz to return to Schonau, I would not have failed to tell her about my meeting with Messrs. de Richelieu and Canning. Besides, "Le Vrai Libéral" of July 19 printed a letter from its Lausanne correspondent which has already revealed the object... It is an admirable invention that newspapers! Without them you would have been unaware all your life, perhaps of my conference with MM. de Richelieu and Canning... The state of Europe is not a trivial matter; the peoples have been aroused in the name of liberty: they have overthrown Napoleon, and they believe they have the right and the strength to overthrow again. I hope that it will be a good way to regulate the crisis to let the newspapers off the hook. There is audacity in undertaking to bring their freedom into the organization of power; there will be skill in turning it to the advantage of the thrones... "(Memoirs and correspondence of King Jerome, (Dentu 1866, VII, 385).
