The first-prize essay:
The Co-Operation of tho French.
In that brilliant chain of events
which led to the establishment of the
United States as a free and independ
ent Nation, nothing appeals more
strongly to the natrlotie Amertpnn than
the action of the French government
in Decoming a party to the struggle for
liberty. The cause was rooted In the
deep resentment which France enter
tained toward England since the treaty
of 1763. It was the bitter fate of France
to look oq, while England became the
mistress of the sea, the greatest colo
nial power on earth, and the dominant
influence in European politics. The
dawn of peace marked the end of the
long struggle for colonial supremacy
between England and France. "War
had decided that America was to be
ruled by Teuton, not Latin. By an
Irony of Fate. Latin jealousy of Teuton
became the instrument of elevating
Teuton over Latin. The struggle just
ended had been one of the most bril
liant In England's history, the peace
just begun the most triumphant. But
England's gain was France's loss.
France was fallen on the "grunsel
edge." Her colonies lost, her finances
demoralized, her navy shattered, her
army disorganized. The hour called
for a man and the great Cholseul, Min
ister of Foreign Affairs, responded to
the call. Earnestly engaged in rais
ing his country from her depression, he
kept a no less watchful eye on the de
velopment of the English colonies in
America, ever seeking an opportunity
to strike a blow against the hereditary
enemy. To this end he had sent an
officer In disguise to America to report
on the condition of affairs. His keen
eye detected the flaw In English pol
loy in the passing of the stamp act.
Tower cites this as one of the most
remarkable cases of foresight In his
tory. Cholseul even reported to the
King that the time was not far dis
tant when the American colonies would
throw off the yoke of England. Cholseul
was little understood and less favored
by the shallow monarch. It Is doubt
ful whether America, had she risen at
this moment, would have received any
encouragement in France. But Jhe
seed sown by the prophetic Cholseul
was destined to bear fruit.
The accession of Louis XVI In 177
brought a new ministry, with M. do "Ver
gennes as the ruling power a man whose
sole ambition was tho glory of France.
He, like Cholseul, believed that the great
ness of England was but a menace to
France, and that the former indignities
which his country had suffered at the
hands of England must be avenged before
France should again rise to greatness.
Duller of vision than Cholseul. he was
not quick to grasp the seriousness of the
position into which England had fallen
with her colonies, nor did the first out
break in America cause any grave appre
hension in the French Cabinet. But when
in 1775 England began to transport large
numbers of troops to America, the impor
tance of the approaching conflict became,
evident to Vergennes. Would the upris-"
ing in the English colonies gh'o France
tho opportunity of re-establishing her lost
prestige? Eager and hopeful, Vergennes
took steps to arouse the King to the ne
cessity for action.
At this period, the Impulse of liberty, the
new spirit of democracy, was stirring the
hearts of men throughout the whole
world. Tho new movement animated the
nobles, the writers, tho philosophers and
the diplomats alike: it was the "genuine
sympathy her people felt with the spirit
of freedom abroad in the world. The
quickenlngs of liberty were strong in
French breasts; the foremost writers, Vol
taire and Rousseau, believed in represent
ative government," says Sloane. Political
Jealousy alone could not have impelled
Franco to ally herself with the colonies;
on the other hand, the philosophers and
patriots of England were the envy of
those of France. In his "Epochs of Mod
ern History" 2dr- Malcolm Ludlow says:
"France was compelled to look up with
longing eyes to England's political liberty,
her untrammeled science, her freedom of
speech and thought. What if to such a
France there should be revealed another
England, still freer than the one already
known, still bolder in speech, and withal
breaking out in a llfe-and-death struggle
with the England of the Old "World?
Would not such a struggle arouse in the
hearts of Freuchmen a feeling of bitter
hatred for the older England, and a feel
ing of admiration and pity for the new?"
Vergennes had a shrewd perception of
the signs of the times. Seeing tho possi
bility of a war with England, with mas
terly diplomacy he hastened to strengthen
the family compact by which Cholseul had
united the various branches of the Bour
bon family. Potnting out to Carlos III the
extreme danger in which the Spanish
West Indies were placed by the presence
of a large British army in America, he
secured tho favorable attention of that
Monarch to the "common interests of
Spain and France, in aiding. Uie colonies
against tho mother country." in a dis
patch to the French Minister at Madrid,
dated August 7. 1775. appears the first
direct intimation that Vergennes Intended
to intervene in behalf of the colonies.
When, a few days later, England issued
her famous proclamation of "Rebellion."
he realized that the opportunity was ripe.
It was a time for action; France should
no longer remain passive. If she wished
to retrieve her lost glory, it was now or
never. A secret agent was dispatched to
America. Following up the opportunity,
Vergennes now presented his "Reflexions"
to the King. The Minister's great argu
ment lay in the belief that the rise of
France depended on the success of tho
American Revolution. Toward the close
of 1775 he presented another paper show
ing tho benefits to be derived by France
from an effective co-operation with the
colonies, and containing a discussion as
to the nature, the proper time and val
uable results of French assistance; and
shrewdly urging that-quiescence would
prove disastrous to France. The "Re
flexions", of Vergennes at least secured
the "royal acquiescence to the pro
gramme." HeaiPwhlle the colonies fought their life
life and, death struggle, no helping band
stretched out to save. Special commis
sioners and secret agents brought pleas
ant words, but substantial aid had not
materialized. Hope was revived by a
long letter from France In September.

gennes, promising arms and munitions

Congress determined to send an embassy
to the court of Louis XVI. On the first
ballot Franklin was chosen by unani

he was tho very embodiment of patriot
Ism and practical wisdom; he was
Franklin the hero, and champion of lib
erty. -for which all France was yearning.
The effect of his arrival was electrifying
among the fashionable set of Paris. The
best society crowded about the old man
to pay their respects. Their admiration
approached .folly. "Gentlemen wore
Franklin hats, ladies kid gloves were
dyed of a 'Franklin hue, and 'cotellettes
a la Franklin' were served at fashionable
dinners," says Fiske. Yet such flattering
attentions merely amused him. He was
the1 same Franklin as of old. tne repre
sentative of a plain, fearless' and pa
triotic people. His cheering presence, his
countenance, his demeanor all expressed
a perfect confidence in tho ultimate tri
umph of the colonies. This the man or
whom Turgot was proud to say; "Brlplut
caels fulmen, sceptrumque tyrannls."
The campaign of 1776 was a dismal fail
ure: the battle of Long Island had been
fought and lost, and New York was in
British hands. Tho behavior of tho
troons was bad in some instances, and
many of tho best officers were killed.
These events cast a gloom over the whole
country the outlook was dark for tne
colonies. These failures produced almost
the same effect in France as in America
All was gloom and apprehension. Ver
gennes had reason that the restoration
of France lay in the success of the Amer
ican Revolution, and he was but waiting
for the time when he could depend on
the colonists for an effective co-operation.
France was yet in a state of bankruptcy;
the colonies had nothing. Tho risk was
great. France was playing a gambling
game. The long succession of defeats
which the Americans had suffered was
discouraging to Vergennes; he was long
ing for a victory, something which would
make him feel as if tho Americans were
on the road to independence. The hope of
Franco lay In a successful America; but
should she ally herself with the colonies
only to see England triumph In the end,
it would mean her ruination. The fer
vent LaFayette abandoned home, fortune,
everything to enlist in tho cause of lib
erty, and against the remonstrances of
family. King and court, set sail for
But the darkest hour precedes the
dawn. On December 4, 1777. there
came glad news from across the sea
"General Burgoyne and his whole army
are prisoners of war!" Franco went
wild. Victory! The flower of tho Brit
ish army in American bandsl Franco
no longer concealed the intention of
openly allying herself with the colo
nies. Tho colonists had proved their
ability did it not mean a successful
America? Saratoga was tho focaV
point of the Revolution. News of tho
great British defeat had caused a com
plete somersault in Lord North's pol
icy. Parliament was ready for concil
iation, and to this end dispatched three
commissioners to Congress. Frank
lin's diplomacy found its opportunity.
Should France neglect the opportunity
to intervene in behalf of the colonies,
England would conciliate. Herein lay
tho importance of Saratoga. On Feb
ruary 6, 1778. the American envoys at
tached their signatures and seals to
three documents 'the treaty of amity
and commerce." the "treaty of alli
ance" and a "secret article" providing
for tho admission of Spain into the
compact whenever that tardy power
should desire it. No longer Is tho
struggle to be confined to tho arms
of Great Britain and America. Hence
forth it becomes' a world struggle.
Ancient Jealousy and hatred of En

ciliation by Great Britain, the man for
the hour. Franklin, with diplomacy to
make proper use of the opportunity;
the resolute independence of the colo
nists and the generalship of Washing

the turn to the wheel and led to
French co-operation, the climax of the
But "the mills of God grind slowly."
Two long years have elapsed since the
Joyous news of Saratoga was first
spread broadcast over the world, and
the people have as yet failed to see
the consequences of that great event.
The alliance has accomplished little
from a military point of view. Tho
French fleet, under D'Estaing, whose
help America needed so surely, had
failed in the Joint expeditions against
New York. Newport and Savannah, nor
had Washington enjoyed th co-operation
of any French land force. The un
popularity of the alliance increased
dally; late events had seemed to Justify
the mistrust - in which it was held.
American had no love for Frenchman;
the "treaty with France was Indeed
a marriage of convenience rather than
Of affection." as Fiske has. phrased it.
Now Englanders were bitterly op
posed to an alliance with the despotic
power, whose cruelties in exciting the
Indian? against them In former wars
they well remembered. The American
soldiers did not take well to the
thought of being commanded by for
eigners; thero were constant disputes;
even the French officers quarreled
among themselves. Add to this a
general snpineness among the Ameri
can soldiers, caused by outside aid,
then the result becomes apparent.
Though in an Indirect way the alliance
was helpful in neutralizing much Brit
ish energy and in turning it aside from
the colonies to Europe, yet these bene
fits aro inconsiderable as compared to
the many defects. This state of affairs
might have continued until England
triumphed over the colonies had not
the generalship of Washington proved
the means of deliverance. When Corn
wallis had retreated to Torktown,
.closely followed by the skillful Lafay
ette, Washington was quick to grasp
the situation. He saw the elements
which might lead to the destruction of
Cornwallis and ultimately end the
war. He had at last found the niche
wherein tho French aid might at.
De Grasse had just arrived with a pow
erful fleet from the West Indies, and
Lafayette had proved himself a worthy
antagonist to the ablest of British
Generals. Washington! plan was exe
cutcd. It is needless to pause upon the
' result. The circumstances of Corn
wallis surrender are known to every
American and the deeds of the gallant
victors dear to every heart. This, the
one instance where French aid was in
dispensable; Washington, the one Gen
eral who could have dealt the crush
The American Revolution was a
world struggle. It proved that man
could be sclf-gove.rnlng. It is vain to
gush over the unselfish nobility of
France. As France was a self-seeker,
sho reaped no ultimate advantage; as
Franco was an Instrument in the di
vine hands of Providenco to establish
liberty and equality, the world was the
