The people which forms an alliance with those butchers, all dripping with the blood of estafets, of reconnoitring parties, and of prisoners, deeply stains its national honour.... It will perhaps be marvelled at, that the Decembriseurs have so frequently published their homicidal deeds. In order to be in a position to account for this cynicism of murder, one ought to recollect that their object was to strike France with unheard-of terror. There was no other means of securing their domination in that country. It was therefore required, for such a design, not only to slaughter anybody whatever who should oppose them, but also to show openly, and in the face of all, that they were slaughterers. Their ambition was to behold every one trembling at their approach as at the approach of the executioner. We are far from having stated all on the subject, but we could not, without exceeding the usual limits of a pamphlet, multiply these gory citations. Those we have brought forward, besides, are, but too unfortunately, sufficient for our purpose. We here claim anew the attention of the English people, for we are anxious to convince them: They should not be forgetful of the fact, that we have made it binding upon ourselves, throughout this account, to record exclusively the Personal Confessions of the criminals. Not one, positively not one, of those dreadful barbarities can therefore be denied or doubted as having no other guarantee than the word of an enemy. We have let the slaughterers themselves speak, in the intoxication of their fury. It is now for England to say whether she chooses to strengthen, by her alliance, for any aim whatever, a government of assassins whose avowed acts cannot escape universal execration. No. II.--BIOGRAPHICAL NOTICES...
