Fatal Friendship?

"History must have a sinister curiosity in ascertaining the first impression made on Madame Roland by the man who, warmed at her hearth, and then conspiring with her, was one day to overthrow the power of his friends, immolate them en masse and send her to the scaffold."

Alphonse de Lamartine on Mdm Roland & Robespierre. History of the Girondists
