Chapter Summary

In mid-July, Rosetti was in the spa village Mont-Dore, not far from Clermont (Puy-de-Dôme), a place famous for its Roman baths and health springs. In May 1856, Rosetti had created a 'chancellery' in charge of correspondence with the Principalities - from the territory of which the exiles were still banned - and with fund-raising and propaganda abroad. Robert Colquhoun's now open and unequivocal support for the antiunion camp must have felt like a personal betrayal to Rosetti. In Constantinople, Stratford Canning was indeed busy outlining the British anti-union view to a harassed Ottoman government, undercutting the parallel pro-union efforts of the French ambassador, Thouvenel. At least once, in private, Stratford admitted that the union would be to the benefit of the two Principalities, yet publicly, in the heated atmosphere in Constantinople, he remained a vigorous anti-unionist.
