Side 467 - The Chancellor objected. . . . This friction had considerably disturbed the relations between Bismarck and the Emperor, and these were further strained by the question of the Cabinet Order of 1852. Bismarck had often advised the Emperor to grant the ministers access to himself and this was done. But when...
Side 438 - Paris would not be allowed to visa any pass without previously asking permission, so that infinite delays would arise in consequence. There is no doubt that this measure would not only excite general surprise and excitement, but would also greatly embitter the local population.

Side 104 - ... and Germany, and so dominate the Continent under the guise of defending the monarchic principle. But France showed a remarkable ability to recuperate, which caused him, in 1874, to instruct his ambassador to that country that "as to France, the chief point of interest to us is to see that she shall not become so powerful internally and of so much weight externally as to secure herself allies.
Side 468 - Each separate personality is now conscious of his own value.
