I Want to Embrace You
My dear comrade-in-arms:
You will have to cherish yourselves. In the past twenty years, we have lived together. What you have done for me will make me not ask for more from you all. I often find you are always advancing on the glorious road. It is you that made the power of Europe join together in order to be strong enough to fight against us.
Some of my generals are not loyal to their duties and to France. France has still more things to do. I wish I should rebel again with your brave comrade-in-arms who is loyal to me. But the France Parliament would not allow and would not agree. So, please devote yourselves to your new king and obey your new commander. Please do not give up our lovely motherland.
Please do not feel sorry for my life. Only if I know you all happy, I will be happy too. I may be sentenced to death. But if I should survive, I would be willing happily to promote your glories and I would write down and record the great achievements we make.
I cannot take you all in my arms instead I would like to embrace your generals. Come up me, my little general. I will take you in my arms tight. Please give me the eagle flag. I want to embrace her. And I still hope that my kissing you will respond in your recent generations. I have to say goodbye to you, my children. I will always bless you all and I hope you will not forget me at all.
