More timid than Laclos and Danton, he did not give any opinion as to the petition.
On the motion of Laclos, the club of the Jacobins got up another.
Laclos proposed a petition to be sent into the departments, and covered with ten millions of signatures.
There is none of the psychologie de commande, which I object to in Laclos, but a true adumbration of life.
Naturally they are most of them grimy; though there is nothing of the Laclos or even of the Paul de Kock kind.
