Behind the Scenes in the Reichstag
Excerpt from Behind the Scenes in the Reichstag: Sixteen Years of Parliamentary Life in GermanyDear Abbe Wetterle, -It is a pleasure to me to have the opportunity of saying what all of us in France think of you, why we love and admire you, and what a place all that your name personifies occupies in our hearts.Do you recollect one of the first lectures which, at the beginning of the war, you delivered in Paris? The Societe des Conferences had invited you to speak on the subject of the dear provinces towards which all our hopes are directed. When, well before the hour, I went to our hall on the Boulevard Saint-Germain, I found the approaches obstructed by a compact crowd, which desired at all hazards to enter the overcrowded building. It became necessary to promise this disappointed but obstinate audience that you would deliver your lecture a second time., You might have reappeared thrice, nay ten times before our honest and responsive Parisian public. It would not have grown tired of coming to hear you, and I say not only to applaud you, but to drink in your words. Those were magnificent gatherings, penetrated by a sacred thrill.What you represent in our eyes is the fidelity of Alsace-Lorraine. To whatever trials that stubborn fidelity has been submitted, it has never flinched. Even when France seemed to be absorbed in sad interior quarrels and to follow up with less impatience the imprescriptible claim, you preserved your faith intact. Not for a moment was your thought turned from us. And that thought has been your whole thought - the thought which has inspired your whole life - your unique thought.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
