Cologne, June 5. The dead ride fast. [Gottfried Bürger, “Lenore"] Herr Camphausen disavows the revolution and the reaction dares to suggest to the Agreement Assembly that the revolution should be stigmatised as a riot. On June 3, a deputy [Karl Richter] moved that a monument be erected for the soldiers who died on March 18.
