[Letters to Dr. Marshall], 1824 Aug-Dec.

31 holograph letters to "Dr. Marshall" of 22 Manchester Street, London. Subjects include requests for English books; financial difficulties; and Sainte-Aulaire's own writing and translations, such as a biographical note on Joel Barlow. There are anticlerical comments, and much discussion of the final illness of Louis XVIII and the accession of Charles X, whose reactionary policies Sainte-Aulaire disliked: "which of the two does His Kingship mean to humbug? The French, or the Holy Alliance?" Sainte-Aulaire refers to himself as "an anti-Aristocrat who did NOT emigrate, and who fought against the Holy Alliance;" offers to produce a correct French translation of Lewis Goldsmith's The Secret Cabinet of Napoleon Bonaparte; and discusses his plans to write a true history of "the massacre of Verona." A letter written December 6, 1824 refers to the trial of Harty de Pierrebourg for the "assassination" of Sainte-Aulaire's son in a duel.
