Chapter Summary

Throughout 1850, Dumitru Brătianu kept up a steady correspondence with Jules Michelet. From London, where he was based in early 1850, he thought that the moment had arrived to launch another awareness and publicity campaign. In Romania, the post-revolutionary regime appeared to take gradual steps towards normalization in early 1851. Former revolutionaries held under arrest at the Monastery of Mărgineni had been liberated by decree by Prince Barbu Stirbey in August 1850, and those held at the Monastery of Vintilă Vodă in March 1851. Jules Michelet, whose course at the Collège de France had been suspended in March, joined the pro-Romanian campaign on the margins, without engaging in manifestly political agitation. Throughout 1851, Zinca Golescu had been busy making enquiries for the sale of family lands in order to send more money to her sons.
