The war over, Bartbojdi' could
ot go to his nativeprovince of
Alsace, held by the Germana.
Paris was in the bands of the
Commnne and civil war was
raging. He resolved to take a
journey to withdraw his mind
from the painful impresions
through which be had passed,
and the idea came to him to
visit America. He visited bis
triend Labonlaye, whom h bhad
not seen for so many dolorous
months, at Versailles, and there
met a number of distinguished
men whose sympathies towards
the United States were well
known. They again talked of!
American sentiment, of the
shipments the Americana bad
made to France and the diverse
opinions that prevailed in Amer
Ica. Laboulaye again declared'
his his views, and added that
without any doubt there would
beat the one hundredth anni
rsery of the fadependOence of
the United States a public dem
oastration of affection for
France. "Go to that country."
said he to Bartboldi. " Vou will
study it; you will bring 'aerk
your impressions. Propose to
our friends over there to make
with us a monument, a common
work, in remembrance of the
ancient triendship ot France
and the United States. We
will take up a subscription in
Franeb. If you ind a happy
idea, a plan that will excite
public enthusiasm we are con.
vineed that it will be sueeas..
fal io both continents, and we
will do a work that will have a
far reabhing moral effect."
It was la these convictions of
I. Laboulaye that the germ of
the mo·Is eut of the Freneh.I
Asliriea Union was .toed.
