MEMOIRSOFNAPOLEON BONAPARTE.CHAPTER I.preparatory schemes-anecdotes - militaryrewards-tuileries-judicious policy ofthe consul - consular constitution.I am almost tempted to designate as the " consulate reparatory," that period of the consular government uring which Bonaparte resided at the Luxembourg. Then, in fact, were planted the first germs of those mighty enterprizes which he meditated, , and the foundation laid of those institutions by which he1 announced his accession to power. He had then two men within himself,-the republican general, exposed to all eyes as the friend of liberty and of revolutionary principles; arid the man of ambition, coveting in secret the overthrow of that liberty, and of those principles: thus in darkness preparing the destruction of the edifice which necessity constrained him to erect in open day. These two characters he played with inconceivable address and deep hypocrisy, which, if it so please, may be titled profound policy.About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
