Jules Andrieu, The Paris Commune, The Fortnightly, Volume 10; Volume 16, 1871, p. 574

“Who could be so unmannerly as to say another word unless perchance some peasant of the Danube were found to urge this further question But these institutions which you call republican are they not the same as you had under the empire True you have perfected the art of civil war but except for that I see nothing but a series of striking resemblances between yourselves and the man of Sedan which seems to make of you and him such irreconcileable rivals M Barthelemy St Hilaire would soon give our peasant of the Danube his answer in the shape of a cell next Rochefort ”
