A member of the Committee of Nine, he was sent to the Count de Chambord, at Salzbiirg, in order to arrange with him the conditions of a monarchical restoration. M. Chesnelong took back a satisfactory account of his interview with the Pretender, and preparations were being made for the entry of the King into Paris when the manifesto of the 27th of October cast disorder and carried desolation into the Legi- timist camp. At the general elec- tions of Feb. 20, 1876, he was again chosen as Deputy for the arron- dissement of Orthez, but the Cham- ber invalidated the election, and when M. Chesnelong sought the suffrages of the electors a second time he was defeated by his Repub- lican opponent, M. Vignancourt (May 21, 1876). A few months later (Nov. 24, 1876) he was elected a senator for life. M. Chesnelong has taken a leading part in all Catholic movements, both in and out of Parliament.

He was president of the general assemblies of the Catholic Committees of France, held at Paris in 1874 and 1875. He is Vice-President of the Conseil General of the Basses- Pyrenees.
