MEMOIRS OF THE COURT OF ST.  CLOUD 

Being Secret Letters from a Gentleman at Paris to a Nobleman in London 

BOOK 3. 

LETTER XXIII. 

PARIS, August, 1805. 

MY LORD:--No Sovereigns have, since the Revolution, displayed more
grandeur of soul, and evinced more firmness of character, than the
present King and Queen of Naples.  Encompassed by a revolutionary volcano
more dangerous than the physical one, though disturbed at home and
defeated abroad, they have neither been disgraced nor dishonoured.
They have, indeed, with all other Italian Princes, suffered territorial
and pecuniary losses; but these were not yielded through cowardice or
treachery, but enforced by an absolute necessity, the consequence of the
desertion or inefficacy of allies.
