Excerpt from History of the National Constituent Assembly: From May, 1848

The Author of this history had been for some months in almost daily attendance at the National Assembly, when repeated questions put to him about the style, manner, and appearance of such members as were at tracting public attention, suggested the idea of writing sketches, calculated in some degree to satisfy the curiosity of friends. A consideration of persons led naturally to an exposé of such subjects as had become identified with particular names; and as the recent Revolution has had the effect of throwing down all that had been taken for granted, and of causing most political and social questions to be brought into light and examining, as if in themselves new, a Work which aimed not beyond simple portraiture, unavoidably assumed a certain politico-philosophical text ure. Having, for purposes of his own, taken notes of the many speeches he had heard, the Author can truly describe this to be an original effort at painting a series of scenes, which it was given to but few of his country men to witness.
