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.
