Letter to Félix Coudroy
Paris, 24 January 1848
[vol. 1, p. 78]
I can write you a few words only as I am suffering from the same illness I had in Mugron and which, among other disagreeable characteristics, has deprived me of all my strength. It is impossible for me to think, let alone write.
My friend, I would have liked to discuss our campaign with you but I am not capable of this. I am not at all happy with our journal; it is weak and anemic like anything that comes out of an association. I am going to ask for total power, but alas, I will not be given health with power.
I am not receiving Le Mémorial197 (from Bordeaux), and consequently I have not seen your article “Anglophobia.”198 I am sorry about this. I might perhaps have drawn a few ideas from it, or we might have reprinted it.
[197 ]Le Mémorial bordelais.
[198 ]Bastiat himself wrote an essay called “Anglomania, Anglophobia.” See p. 320.
