Chapter Summary

If 1852 had been a year of deaths and losses, 1853 held the promise of births and new beginnings. Rosetti returned briefly to Paris on 9 May 1853. Events accelerated on the European political scene in the early months of 1853, largely as a result of Russian initiatives in the Near East. Partly as an attempt to win over the French Catholics, Napoleon III had decided to put pressure on Russia in support of the interests of Catholic monks at the Holy Places in Palestine and Jerusalem against those of Greek Orthodox monks, supported by Russia. The Romanian exiles, as always, lived on rumours. In late May Rosetti received information from occult sources about the Russian army's alleged crossing of the river Prut into Moldavia.
