In Le Correspondant (1843), established by Montalembert and De Falloux, the Catholics and Legitimists had a valuable supporter.
After the revolution of July, when the Legitimists withdrew in a body, Berryer alone retained his seat as deputy.
The matter became a question of partisan controversy, the legitimists asserting that he frequently offered to serve against France, but that London, where he lived till 1807 - for the most part in studious retirement.
And of the Legitimists in France, the consolidation of the new kingdom in Italy, and the alliance with Austria had dispelled the fear of a Catholic league.
Lastly, there were in Kufa, and still more in Basra, many Othmaniya or legitimists, on whose co-operation he could not rely.
The Legitimists seemed impossible, and the people turned instinctively towards a Bonaparte.
Thirty-five opposers of the government were appointed, Republicans, Orleanists, Legitimists or Catholics.
