Charles V. of France

: Kings.

The last words of this patriotic monarch are
memorable for the noble moral for kings which they contain. "I have aimed

at justice," said he to those around him; "but what king can be certain

that he has always followed it? Perhaps I have done much evil of which I am

ignorant. Frenchmen! who now hear me, I address myself in the presence of

the Supreme Being to you. _I find that kings are happy but in this--that

they have the power of doing good_."
