dc.description.abstract In the print shown here one can note the writing on the Telegraph: "Nouvelles d'Espagne" (News from Spain). In 1834, the Carlist war was raging in Spain. With the help of the English, Don Miguel finally managed to defeat his brother Don Pedro at Evora. By holding back the news from Spain by only a short time, huge speculative fortunes were made by members of the Government at the Paris Stock Exchange. The persons depicted in this print are Persil, Soult, Thiers, Humann, while King Louis-Philippe and d'Argout are watching from the window of the mill. Thiers who had just become Minister of the Interior was freshly married and made a fortune in insider trading, using the telegraph as a medium of 'advance information'. He was accused of illegal 'maneuvring' which, of course never held up in court.
