Whittier, John Greenleaf to Theodore Roosevelt. Amesbury, Mass., 1871 4/1. (looks like rough draft) [Accepts invitation to celebrate Italian unity, emancipation of Rome and its establishment as the capitol, all of which he looks upon with sympathy. Had he been a Catholic, he would have hailed deliverance from Papal temporal rule, "the despotism of a thousand years;" as a radical republican, he rejoices in the civil liberty of all men. He lost confidence in the French Republic when it crushed the Roman Republic under Mazzini and Garibaldi in 1849; now supports the efforts of Jules Faure (Favre?) and Leon Gambetta in reestablishing the French republic; the logical sequence of the bombardment of Rome by Charles Nicholas Oudinot (Marshal of France under Napoleon) is the "investment of Paris by King William"; the "terrible chassepot which made its first bloody experiment upon the half-armed Italian patriots without the walls of Rome (at Mentona) has failed in the hands of French republicans against the inferior needle gun of Prussia." No European Catholic powers came to the rescue of the Papal regime -- not Isabella of Spain nor the fugitive son of King Bomba, only the "loud-mouthed" American ecclesiastics protested the right of the Roman people to choose their own government and denies the right of kings in the person of Pio Nono.] Published in The Letters of John Greenleaf Whittier/ed. by John Pickard. vol. III, 1975.
