To REVELL PHILLIPS

Strasburg Septr 25th 1832

THE absurdity of the King of Bavaria has cost me a good deal, as I was obliged to oppose every possible measure to the arbitrary illegality of his conduct, more for the sake of future objects of his petty royal malice than my own, of course in vain.

P.S. By the way I have taken an M.D. at Wurzburg but do not at present desire to make use of the title.
