‘Paris: 1st Oct., 1853.

‘My dear Rogers,—I was very unfortunate in calling as I passed through London a few hours after you had left town. But I had an excellent account of your health. I have been here a week and go to-morrow to the south. There are hardly any people of Paris here; but Lord Lansdowne, the Hollands, and one or two nice English, have made the place very agreeable. The appearance of things is pretty much the same as it has been these last eighteen months. No one seems to regret the loss of their Constitution except the members of the former government and former legislature. In fact, the parties had made their Parliament quite contemptible. On the other hand, the person at the head is taken as a mere necessary of political life which they can’t do without, although they don’t much relish it.

‘Believe me, sincerely yours,
H. Brougham.’
