Title:Eugène Dumez letter, 1865 February 17

Letter from Eugène Dumez, St. John the Baptist Parish, La., to Henry Vignaud reports that communication is difficult between the countryside and New Orleans and delays his writing. He asks about Slidell and asserts that Europe must determine its role in American affairs. He states that the Confederacy has weakened since autumn and that if European powers do not intervene, the Monroe Doctrine will go into effect as a result of Northern victory. Dumez relates that Dr. Lafon is leaving for France after having been informed that the Emperor will allow him to return from exile. He asks Vignaud to explain remarks concerning the Renaissance and comments upon the Revues being replaced by the Glaneur Universel. In French.
