The Second Condemnation
The details of the Dreyfus case are too long to be given here. Let it suffice to say that after a five years imprisonment on Devils Island, Dreyfus was brought back to France and re-tried. His sentence, pronounced on Sept. 9, 1899, was Guiltywith extenuating circumstances. In French law this with extenuating circumstances is equivalent to our with recommendation to mercy. He was pardoned by the President ten days later.
