Gamla tidningsöverskrifter

Såg den här listan på ett forum där jag är tämligen aktiv. Ska vara riktiga "headline news", översatta från franska, från en Paristidning som skrevs under Napoleons marsch mot Paris; dvs när han återkom från sin första exil.

Gillar starkt hur oppurtunistiska de är :)

March 9th. The Monster has escaped from his place of banishment

March 10th. The Corsican Ogre has landed at Cape Juan

March 11. The Tiger has shown himself at Gap

March 13th. The Tyrant is now at Lyon

March 18th. The Usurper has ventured to approach within 60 hours' march of the capital

March 19th. Bonaparte is approaching by forced marches, but it is impossible he can reach Paris

March 20th. Napoleon will arrive under the walls of Paris tomorrow

March 21st. The Emperor Napoleon is at Fontainbleau

March 22nd. Yesterday morning his Majesty the Emperor made his public entry and arrived at the Tuileries
