LAMENNAIS Félicité de (1782-1854)
L.A.S. "F. M.", at la Chênaie 10 December [1822], to Jacques Bins de SAINT-VICTOR; 2 pages in-8, address. He protests against an article by Arsène O'MAHONY in Le Drapeau blanc attacking Eugène de GENOUDE: "It cannot be allowed to immolate in this way, with public ridicule, a man who may have faults, but who also has a reputation, which is his property, and who cannot be taken away from him [...] to amuse the reader at his expense. Frankly, this is satyricism". He is very distressed by this, and is thinking of selling his share of the paper, not wanting to "share the guarantee of everything that can be inserted [...] I am constantly being bothered about this unfortunate paper; and I have, in truth, enough of my work, without exposing myself again to all these tugs and turns which tire and even irritate".
