Chapter Summary

The young Alexandru Golescu-Albu 'republicans', isolated at the family manor at Goleşti killed their time with letter-writing, gardening and attempts at reforming village life: by personal example, the ladies of the manor inspired village women to wear Romanian national dress, similar to the garments worn by Marie Rosetti in Rosenthal's portrait. In the same letter, Golescu-Albu appealed to the Parisian branch for information on the precise timelines of the recent Magyar-Romanian hostilities in Transylvania. Golescu-Albu continued to reflect on the failure of the European revolutions of 1848, and in particular of the Romanian revolution, in a lengthy letter from Bursa dated August-September 1850, a letter which has to be considered as one of the foundational texts of the Romanian diaspora in the 1850s.
