From Mr E. P. Moisson

Sir: I was saddened to read of the impact of heavy rain upon the radicals of Paris ("Students take to the streets in '68 style", 22 November). One is reminded of the crowds being halted for similar reasons some 200 years ago, thus failing to prevent the execution of Robespierre.

Must inclement weather always thwart the noble stride of revolution?
