Example text

Old friends from the lycee, Paul Leroy-Beaulieu and Albert Decrais, purchased stock in the venture. The paper appeared in October 1879 bearing the compromise title worked out between the two founders. 6 The responsibility for the paper's contents was Ribot's, and Jules Dietz, as editor-in-chief, managed daily operations. The staff included young Francis de Pressense, son of the noted religious writer and politician, who edited foreign affairs for much of the paper's existence, and Georges Michel, who wrote on economic questions.

Rather, British vitality and expansionist methods were viewed as models for France to follow. Moreover, Great Britain was regarded as a natural balance for France against the Bismarckian system. Thus, when Egyptian disturbances began early in 1882, Ribot approved Gambetta's efforts to meet the problem in concert with England. 33 When Freycinet succeeded Gambetta in office, Ribot became a natural choice to serve as reporter for Leon Say's budget, and he joined the financial commission elected to consider credits for Egyptian policy as well.

For his wife failed to share the mystique of the countryside. The couple did compromise three years later by purchasing a summer home at Sannois only a few miles from Paris where Ribot could indulge his affection for the pastoral life and enjoy the relief that it provided from the political routine. In Paris, his wife prevailed. The season at their apartment on Rue Joffroy meant dinners in the formal style of the period. To Ribot's acquaintances, the Boutmys, the Charmes brothers, Adrien Montebello, and Georges Picot, Mme Ribot added older figures from the bar, Alicot and du Buit, plus Georges Cochery and his wife and the painter Dieterle (Boucher's father-in-law) as most frequent guests.
