Ten Years' Exile  Memoirs Of That Interesting Period Of The Life Of The Baroness De Stael Holstein
It Is Not With The View Of Occupying The Public Attention With What
Relates To Myself, That I Have Determined To Relate The
Circumstances Of My Ten Years' Exile; The Miseries Which I Have
Endured, However Bitterly I May Have Felt Them, Are So Trifling In
The Midst Of The Public Calamities Of Which We Are Witnesses, That I
Should Be Ashamed To Speak Of Myself If The Events Which Concern Me
Were Not In Some Degree Connected With The Great Cause Of Threatened
Humanity. The Emperor Napoleon, Whose Character Exhibits Itself
Entire In Every Action Of His Life, Has Persecuted Me With A Minute
Anxiety, With An Ever Increasing Activity, With An Inflexible
Rudeness; And My Connections With Him Contributed To Make Him Known
To Me, Long Before Europe Had Discovered The Key Of The Enigma.
