Love and liberty - PDF novel -  Alexandre Dumas



Of all the remarkably interesting events connected with the French Revolution, perhaps the one most worthy of notice is the flight of Louis XVI, and his capture at Varennes. At the time when I determined to take the trip of which I will give you some details, and which put me in possession of the memoirs I am about to publish — that is to say, about the 19th of June, 1856 — I had read almost all that had been written concerning the above-mentioned flight. I wish to start from Chalons because from the fact of the King being recognized there, came the train of events which ended at Varennes on the evening of his arrest.
