03Dec1870, A Feeling Against the Prussians

CHATSWORTH, December 3rd, 1870.
—There is a strong feeling now against the Prussians who, if they had ceased offensive measures after Sedan, with the full glory of that splendid campaign in which the French pride was humbled for ever—Germany united, and an absolutely unsullied cause—how grand would have been their position ! Now they are fighting for blood-thirst and ambition and one cannot but admire the holding out of poor gallant Paris, in the teeth of disaster, privation, and defeat.
