Chapter 3 begins after a gap in correspondence from October 1787 to August 1789. When we meet Rosalie again, she is in the middle of chaos, and together she and her readers begin to make sense of the monumental changes taking place. In the beginning, Rosalie was fearful of urban crowds and confused by the political changes. After two years of Revolution, she developed a political ideology that in some ways reflected her Old Regime worldview. Her husband and son’s enthusiasm for the Jacobin Club also brought her to embrace that Left-wing faction.
