7508. REVOLUTION (French), Famine and.—[further continued] .

There have been some
mobs, occasioned by the want of bread, in
different parts of the kingdom, in which there
may have been some lives lost, perhaps a dozen
or twenty. These had no professed connection,
generally, with the constitutional revolution.
A more serious riot happened lately in Paris,
in which about one hundred of the mob were
killed. This execution has been universally approved,
as they seemed to have no view but
mischief and plunder.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. iii, 34.
(P. May. 1789)
