Not illustrated. 1920 edition. Excerpt: Mazzini and Ledru-Rollin. It contained a terrible indictment of socialistic teaching from the pen of Mazzini, which gave such ofi"ence to Madame Sand as to result in the rupture of her friendship with its author_---J. W. Mmuo. himself in the Polish insurrection of 1830, and who died of consumption in 1852 or 1853. After organizing the Italian National Committee Mazzini issued a National Loan for ten million Italian lire, upon a model prepared by Carlo Cattaneo. In taking these steps he acted upon the authority conferred on him after the fall of Rome by sixty representatives of the Roman Parliament: a power never looked upon as rescinded; even as Garibaldi always considered as remaining in force till 1860, the plenary (military) power conferred on him by the same body. Messrs. Martin, Stone and Martin received the subscriptions to the loan, and Stansfeld became its London agent, though afterwards, at his father's instance, he withdrew his name from the notes. Sirtori, and the Italian National Committee, gave no end of trouble over the manifesto of the loan, taking all the force out of it. The idea was, however, received with much enthusiasm, and the subscriptions started well. The notes, in spite of the frightful risks attending their possession and circulation, ranked among the people of Mantua and Milan, etc., as current coin. Indirectly, it was the accidental discovery, by the Austrian authorities in Venice, of one of these notes that led to the revelation, in 1851, of the great secret organization of which Mantua was the centre, an account of which will be given later.
