“I remained three weeks and two days at Paris, and was highly gratified, not only with the specimens of art with which that city abounds, but with the friendly reception which I met with from some of the first characters there. I had the pleasure of an introduction to General la Fayette, to whom I presented your letter, which he read with great interest; and at parting, pressing one of my hands most kindly between his, bade me tell you how much he felt the value of your good opinion, and begged, if you ever visited Paris, that you would do him the pleasure of calling upon him. I promised faithfully to deliver his regards to you, and it occurred to me afterwards that it might be agreeable to him to possess your letter. In a conversation with the friend who introduced me, I mentioned this idea, and he assured me that nothing could be a greater pleasure to M. la Fayette, and that if I would intrust it
to him, as he was going to visit him the subsequent week at his country house, he would be the bearer of it. I accordingly committed it to his care (having kept a copy), together with a copy of your ‘
Tracts on the War’ both of which will be very acceptable presents.”
