Letter addressed to public prosecutor Fouquier-Tinville from the father of Camille Desmoulins, pleading for his son’s life. 

Camille Desmoulins, my son, I speak from conviction, is a true Republican in feeling, in principles and, so to speak, by instinct…His perfect disinterestedness and love of truth have kept him on a level with the loftiest aspirations of the Revolution…
Citizen, I ask of you but one thing, in the name of justice and of our country - for the true Republican thinks of naught besides - to investigate, and to cause the examining jury to investigate the conduct of my son, and that of his denouncer, whoever he may be; it will soon be known which is the true Republican. The confidence in my son’s innocence makes me believe that this accusation will prove a fresh triumph, as well for the Republic as for him. 


The letter is dated 15 Germinal; it was not received until after the execution of Camille Desmoulins.

Statue of Camille Desmoulins in Paris, destroyed 1942
I had a big story typed out about him and the background to the statue and much more but Tumblr crashed so I lost it.
All I’m going to say is that 5 April is today, the day Desmoulins was guillotined and I’d rather we don’t forget how important he was.

Letter from Lucile Demoulins to her imprisoned husband, Camille. She asks how he has rested and whether he has received a lock of her hair. I do believe the parchment is stained with her tears.

Is it just me, or are the officers more interested in checking out Camille’s body, than in carrying out the actual arrest?

Danton is the chillest motherfucker around.  “Yeah, condemned to death, gotta go. Catch you later, Fouquier-Tinville.”
