To the United States Minister at Paris.


The undersigned join in the same sentiment to reprove and condemn with all their might and deplore with all their soul the nameless crime that has taken from the world and from great America the greatest of men and the most honest of citizens.

Tell the people you have the honor to represent, that from this central part of France, the country of Lafayette and Mirabeau, hearts beat full of hope, though oppressed by the weight of deep grief, and confidence in the future of your country, made great and imperishable by liberty.

  • A. THIOR.
  • L. PENOTT.
  • COLIN.
  • GOLS.
    And one hundred and fifty others.
