From the day on which he joined the Committee in July 1793 to the day of his fall a year later, Robespierre signed 544 [arrest warrants], compared with over twice that number by Barere, Carnot, and Prieur de la Cote-d’Or; and only Saint-Andre, Saint-Just, and Couthon (the first two frequently absent on missions and the last as often prevented by sickness) signed fewer; and Robespierre signed hardly any at all after 3 July when he began to stay away from the meetings.
