Current circumstances and the approach of the National Convention seem to warn us that the title of “Defender of the Constitution” is no longer appropriate for this work, even though we declared from the beginning that it wasn’t its defects we wanted to defend but its principles. Though our wish was never to defend it against the wishes of the people who could and should perfect it, but against the court and against all the enemies of freedom who wanted to destroy it or have it deteriorate. We will henceforth continue this work under a title more analogous to the conjuncture in which we find ourselves.

Since pressing circumstances have caused a certain delay in the issuing of issues, we will repair this as soon as possible.
