Excerpt from The New Annual Register, or General Repository of History, Politics, and Literature, for the Year 1819
The foreign reladons of Britain continue highly satis factory. France, though ia a slight degree agitated by party, especially by the machinations of the Ultra Royalists, is advancing, under the guidance of the good sense and moderation of the King, in industry, prosperity, and strength. Spain during 1819 sunk, if possible, deeper in degrada tion and distress than she had previously done, and seem ed to have reached that state, in which human patience and endurance under a feeble government is exhausted. Some parts of Germany obtained at least the semblance bf political liberty; others were still refused it, though re. Peatedly promised it but all were dreadfully agitated. The United States, in all the vigour of youth, were throwing ofi' their temporary distress; while the cause of freedom was advancing in South America.
