Poor Arrivabene! Will he believe it: MAZZUCATO was here yesterday, and they've worked on their regulations again. He hopes to have everything finished soon, and to be able to go to Sant'Agata.
Why didn't Arrivabene say anything about France?. It could be worse! Much worse than 93! It was a matter of winning a freedom they had never had, and they had not suffered such defeats, nor had they had an enemy at home! "( Ben peggio del 93! Allora si trattava d'acquistare e rassodare una libertà che non avevano ancora avuto; en non avevano soff erto tanti desastri, nè avevano un nemico in casa! ") One day, such infamy ("questa nefandità") will not be believed ...
