written by Rodin, that he started and tit his lips
with rage, as he recognized the words of the
greit poet, truly Christian, who had dealt such
rude blows to the false church. Rodin waited
for some moments with angry impatience, think
ing the voice would continue; but Kose-PomjKWi
was silent, or only continued to hum, and soon
changed to another air, that of the good pope,
which she eutoned, but without words. Kodin,
not venturing to look out of his window to see
who was this troublesome warbler, shrugged his
shoulders, resumed his pen, and continued:
" To it again. We must exasperate the hide,
pendent spirits in all countries excite ph;h,,j,!,;,
rage all over Europe make liberalism foam at
the mouth raise all that is wild and noisy
against Rome. To effect this, we must proclaim
in the face of the world these three propositions:
1. It is abominable to assert that a man may be
saved in any faith whatever, provided his morals
be pure. 2. It is odious and a surd to grant
liberty of conscience to the people. 3. The lib
erty of the press cannot be held in too much
S,e Pope Gregory XVI.'s Encyclical Letter to
the Bishops in France, 1S32.J
"We must bring the Vnp-fed-mnh to declare
these propositions in every respect orthodox-

of it. So many butcheries in his name he will
shrink, be sure he will shrink every day will
have its remorse, every night its-terror, every
minute its anguish; and the abdication he already
threatens will come at last perhaps too soon.
That is now the only danger; you must provide
f Hardly had the Sixteenth Gregory ascended
the pontifical throne, than news came of the ris
ing in Bologna, His first idea was to call the
Austrians, and inch.' 'the Sanfedist volunteer
bands of fanatics. Cardinal Alcini defeated the
liberals at Cesena, where his followers pillaged
churches, sacked the town, and ill-treated women.
At Forli, cold-blooded murders were committed.
In 1832 the Sanfedists (IIy Faithitie) openly
paraded their medals, bearing the heads of the
Duke of Modena and the pope; letters issued by
the apostolic confederation; privileges and indul
gences. They took the following oath: 'I, A.
B., vow to rear the throne aid altar over the
bones of infamous freedom-shriekers, and exter
minate these latter without pity for the children's
cries and women's tears.' The disorders perpe
trated by these marauders went beyond all
bounds; the Romish Couit regularized anarchy
and organized the Sanfedists into volunteer
corps, to which fresh privi'eges were granted.
Revue des Deux Mondes, Nov. 15th, 1844 'La
Revolution en Italie.'
"In case of an abdication, the grand peniten
tiary has understood me. Instead of confiding
to a general the direction of our Order, the best
militia of the Holy See, I should command it
myself. Thenceforward this militia would
me no uneasiness. For instance: the Janissaries
and the - Pra-torian Guards were always fatal to
authority why? because they were able to or
ganize themselves as defenders of the govern
ment, independently of the government; hence
their power of intimidation.
"Clement XIV. was a fool. To brand and
abolish our Company was an absurd fault.
To protect and make it harmless, by declaring
himself the General of the Order, is what he
should have done. The Company, then at his
mercy, would have consented to anything. lie
would have absorbed us, made us vassals of the
Holy See, and would no longer have had to fear
our service. Clement XIV, died of the colic.
Let him heed who hears. In a similar case, I
should not die the same death."
Just then, the clear and liquid voice of Rose
Pompon was again heard. Rodin bounded with
rage upon his seat ; hut soon, as he listened to the
following verse, new to him (for, unlike Phile
mon's widow, he had not his Bcranger at his
fingers' ends), the Jesuit, accessible to certain
odd, superstitious notions, was confused and
almost frightened ut so singular a coincidence
It is Beranger's Good Pope who speaks:
" What are monarch ? shoepUh wu!
Or thryV robber, puffed with pride,
, Wearing badge of crlms b'ou.
Till their certain grave gap wlJe.
If they'll your out coin for me,
I'll abco've them-klo aod tune!
If they haggle they shall
My Hint dancing on their tbrore!
So laugh aay!
Leap, ny favj
Only watch hurl the thunder
First of all, bu; '. us unde r,
I'm the I 'ope, the whole world' wonder"'
Rodin, half-risen from his chair, with out
stretched neck and attentive eye, was still listen
ing, when Rose-Pompon, flitting like a bee from
flower to flower of her r,jertr, had already be
gun the delightful air of Colibri. Hearing no
more, the Jesuit reseated himself, in a sort of
stupor; but, after some minutes' reflection, his
couutence again brightened up, and he seemed to
see a lucky omen in this singular incident. He
resumed his pen, and the first words lie wrote
partook, as it. were, of this strauge coniidt iice in
"I have never had more hope of success than
at this moment. Another reason to neglect noth
ing. Every presentiment demands redoubled
zeal. A new thought occurred to me yesterday.
" We shall act here in concert. I have founded
an ultra-Catholic paper, called Seiijhhui-hj bi

will confirm these reports. They will cause new
" That will be well.
"I shall raise the question of liberty of instruc
tion. The raw liberals will support us. Like
fools, they admit us to equal rights; when our
privileges, our influence of the confessional, our
obedience to Rome, all place us beyond the circle
of equal rights, by the advantages which we en
joy. Double fools! they think us disarmed, be
cause they have disarmed themselves towards us.
"A burning question irritating clamors new
cause of disgust for the Weak Man. Every little
makes a mickle.
" That also is very well.
"To sum up all in two words The end is ah
dication the means, vexation, incessant torture.
The Rennepont inheritance will pay for the elec
tion. The price agreed, the merchandise will be
Rodin here paused abruptly, thinking he had
heard some noise at that door of his, which
opened on the stircase; therefore he listened with
suspended breath; but all remaining silent, he
thought he must have been deceived, and took
up his pen:
" I will take care cf the Rennepont business
the hinge on which will turn our temporal oper
ations. We must begin with the foundation
substitute the play of interests, and springs of
passion, for the stupid club-law of Father d'Aig-
ritrny. He nearly compromised everything and
yet he has good parts, knows the world, has pow
ers of seduction, quick insight but plays ever in
a single key, and is not great enough to make
himself little. In his stead, I shall know how to
make use of him. There is good stuff in the
man. I availed myself in time of the full powers
given by the R. F. G.; I may inform Father
d'Aigrigny, in case of need, of the secret engage
ments taken by the General towards myself.
Until now, I have let him invent for this inheri
tance the destination that you know of. A good
thought, but reasonable. The same end, by
" The information was false. There are over
two hundred millions. Should the eventuality
occur, what was doubtful must become certain
An immense latitude is left us. The Rennepont
business is now doubly mine, and within three
months, the two hundred millions will be ours,
bv the free will of the heirs themselves. It must
be so; for this failing, the temporal part would
escape me, and my chances be diminished by
one-half. I have asked for lull powers; time
presses, and I act as if I had them. One piece
of information is indispensable for the success of
my projects.' I expect it from you, and I must
have it; do you understand me.' lac powerful j
influence of your brother at the Court of Vienna
will seive you in this. I wish to have the most
precise details as to the present position of the
Duke de Reichstadt the Napoleon II. of the
Imperialists. Is it possible, by means of your
brother, to open a secret correspondence with
the prince, unknown to his attendant;?
"Look to this promptly. It is urgent. This
note will be sent off to-day. I shall complete it
to-morrow. It will reach you, as usual, by the
hands of the petty shop-keeper."
At the moment when -Rodin was sealing this
letter within a double envelope, he thought lhat
he again heard a noise at the door. He listened.
