S.A. Bent, comp.  Familiar Short Sayings of Great Men.  1887.
Anselme Batbie
        [A French politician, born 1828; member of the National Assembly and Senate; Minister of Public Instruction, Worship, and Fine Arts, 1873.]
We must organize against the progress of revolutionary barbarism a government of combat.
          The expression un gouvernement de combat, which M. Batbie used in a parliamentary report, November, 1872, during the presidency of Thiers, became the watchword and counter-watchword of the conservative and republican parties during the parliamentary struggle which ended in the overthrow of the monarchical combination by the elections of 1877.
