By or on behalf of Edme-Patrice-Maurice MacMahon : [political manifesto]

'Sunday morning, as I was out getting chocolate, I found two new manifestoes on the walls. One from a private person, editor of a Radical journal, calling on the people to be calm, and rest on the weight of their majority. The other, a declaration of the Presidentís, which made me so mad that I could have broken his head if he had been within my reach. It was written, I firmly believe, with the intention of driving on the Republicans to extremities, and shook the cat in the air with a sort of paternal menace, that must have been maddening to the Opposition.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Robert Louis Stevenson      Print: Poster, election posters.
