§717 Prince imperial checked; Amnesty of the Communards (1879): V-97.

V-97 (§717):

The deformed child by fear suffocated,
In the comfortable city of the great King:
The severe edict of the captives revoked,
Hail and thunder inestimable Condom.

(Le nay defforme par horreur suffoqué,
Dans la cité du grand Roy habitable:
L'edict severe des captifz revoqué,
Gresle & tonnerre Condom inestimable.)

NOTES: Vignois (1910, p.386) presents us with a reasonable solution: « Several years after the Prince imperial had been condemned to fall like a Spartan deformed child by the Assembly at Bordeaux [in 1871], and a few months before he effectively passed away [June 1st 1879], the edict of the prisoners in Noumea, shown as too severe, was revoked. Those who had made rain like hail and thunder the evils upon their country could not fully appreciate such a pardon without precedent.»

The deformed child by fear suffocated: = The Prince imperial Napoléon-Eugène-Louis-Jean-Joseph Bonaparte deprived of his heirship to the Empire by the anti-Bonapartist deputies = the young prince (§702, VI-3) = the chief of the camp (§716, IV-9). Such an expression is accustomed with Nostradamus who says “the eaten hands of his son ” (§553,IV-61), “his son submerged in the pit”(§554,IV-53), etc. as to the King of Rome, the legitimate heir to the Emperor Napoleon I.

In the comfortable city [Paris] of the great King [President Grévy]: President Grévy: « On the 28th of January, 1879, MacMahon, finding himself unable to agree with his ministers and hopeless of forming a new ministry conformable to his views, resigned. There is every reason to believe that, had he willed, he might have contested the presidency of the republic successfully. But he waived his claims in favour of Jules Grévy, who was elected president on the 30th of January, 1879, by 536 votes against 99 for General Chanzy, Gambetta becoming president of the chamber and Waddington the prime minister.» (HH, XIII, p.192).

Hail and thunder: The Communard revolt in 1871. Cf. §693, V-81: thunder, lightning: « The strength of the Versailles army engaged in these operations was about 90,000 men; so desperate was the struggle to plant the tricolour upon the Montmartre buttes and the Northern Railway station. The victorious troops immediately erected several batteries in Montmartre, one with eight naval guns of large calibre. These and other guns opened a heavy fire [hail] during the night between the 23rd and 24th of May on the Quartier du Temple and the Hôtel de Ville. During this night the Tuileries burst out in flames, and the Palais Royal, the Theatre Lyrique, and the Chatelet, the Palais de Justice, the Prefecture of Police, and other public buildings shared the same fate. The scene as witnessed from the top of the Belleville heights [we once more quote the official historian of the Commune] was “ the most imposing, terrific, and horrible spectacle that can possibly be imagined. The flames seemed to reach the clouds and lick the heavens. The hearths from which they arose were more white-red, more incandescent, than the hottest furnace. Some, with fiercer nuclei in their midst than the rest, displayed a brilliancy beyond all description. From time to time terrific explosions [thunder] were heard, while immense sheaves of flame and balls of fire and sparks rose above the rest to the heavens, piercing the clouds…Wherever any shell bursts, they seemed to burn weakly at first, but rapidly increased in intensity, and rising like giants, illuminated the horizon. It is no exaggeration to say that they multiplied with the rapidity of lightning [lightning].”» (Rich, II, p.628-629).

Condom: =  Condon (§715, IV-72) (Gers) suggesting the Latin word condono (to forgive, to pardon) (Vignois, id.).

The severe edict of the captives revoked: = Amnesty of the Communards: A partial amnesty in April 1879 and a general one in July 1879 (cf. Seignobos, 1921c, p. 60; p.70).
