[[Image:Genet.gif|thumb|left|Edmond-Charles Genêt, Ambassador of the French Republic in the United States]]When we were groaning under an [[Wikipedia:Ancien Regime|arbitrary government]], when we could only feel sorry for your fate, regret the bonds that once linked us to you, and, while murmuring in secrecy on the treasons of which you had been the victims, when we did not dare more than you to raise up our heads curved under the yoke of servitude, a sterile indignation for the criminal behaviour of [[Wikipedia:List of French monarchs|our kings]] towards you was the only homage we could pay you.
