Excerpt from Remarks of Mr. Edward Everett on the French Question, in the House of Representatives of the United States, on the 7th of February and 2d of March, 1835: With the Reports of the Majority and Minority of the Committee of Foreign Affairs, on the Same Subject I have said already, sir, that my anticipations of the satisfactory adjustment of the business are less sanguine than they were. There are, however, some reasons for hope that the French Chambers will make the appropriation this winter. One of the chief reasons is, that the Chamber of Deputies of last year contained some members by no means entitled to the compliment paid to them by the gentleman from Kentucky, (mr. Johnson, ) Of having understood the question thoroughly, and not having rejected the appropriation through ignon rance. On the contrary, sir, there was exhibited, in my opinion, an entire ignorance of some of the most important facts of the case, and in reference to the most important of them all, a gross, not to say a discreditable ignorance, which I believe proved fatal to the passage of the appropriation bill, and which, should the two countries most on. Happily be brought into collision, will throw a tremendous response bility on those members. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
