In another letter, Hegel boasted jcques Fries had five or six hearers for his Logic class at Heidelberg, whilst Hegel had almost 70 Briefe II, n, He held no sway over the course of events. He was subsequently suspended from teaching. He argues that Prussia had supported Haller through their ambassador in Switzerland, so in attacking him, Hegel was attacking elements of the court.

It hont said at this time that Hegel had not written the final lessons of the Philosophy of History. History came to an end with the constitution that Friedrich Wilhelm III promised in vain to his people.

Hegel met Cousin in Dresden and after his arrest wrote a letter on his behalf.
