Excerpt from The History of the French Revolution, Vol. 2 of 4

We to the vanquished when the victor? disagree! The latter suspend their own quarrels, and seek to surpass each other in zeal to crush their prostrate enemies. At the Temple were confined the prisoners 011 whom the tempest of the revolutionary passions was about to hurst. The monarchy, the aristocracy, in short all the past, against which the Revolution was furiously struggling, were personified, as it were, in the unfortunate Louis XVI. The manner in which each should henceforth treat him was to be the test of his hatred In the counter-revolution. The Legislative Assembly, look closely succeeding the constitution which declared the King inviolable, had not ventured to decide upon his fate; it had suspended and shut hint up in the Temple; it had not even abolished royally, and had bequeathed to a Convention the duty of judging all that belonged to the old monarchy, whether material or personal. Now that royalty was abolished, the republic decreed, and the framing of the constitution was consigned to the meditations of the most distinguished minds in the Assembly, the fate of Louis XVI. yet remained to be considered.

Six weeks had elapsed, and a crowd of pressing affairs, the supply and superintendence of the armies, the procuring of provisions, then scarce, as in all times of public disturbance, the police, and all the details of the government, which had been inherited from royally, and transferred to an executive council, merely to be continually reverted to with extreme diffidence; lastly, violent quarrels hail prevented the Assembly from turning its attention to the prisoners in the Temple. Once only had a motion been made concerning them, and that had been referred, as we have seen, to the committee of legislation. At the same lime, they were everywhere talked of.
