HUGO Victor (1802-1885).
L.A.S. "Victor Hugo", Paris, November 5 ; 1 page in-8.
The day after the vote of the Constitution of 1848.
"The institution of a single assembly seems to me so perilous for the tranquility and prosperity of the country that I did not believe I could vote for a constitution where this seed of calamities is deposited. I deeply hope that the future will prove me wrong"...
[This Constitution, adopted on November 4 by the Constituent Assembly, organized power between a single assembly and a President of the Republic, all elected by universal suffrage. On the following December 10, Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte was elected to the Presidency, and in May 1849, Victor Hugo became representative of the Seine].
