3119. FRANCE, American politics and.—

It is still a comfort to see by the address of Dumouriez * * *, that the constitution
of 1791 is the worst thing which is to be
forced on the French. But even the falling
back to that would give wonderful vigor to
our monocrats, and unquestionably affect the
tone of administering our government. Indeed.
I fear that if this summer should prove
disastrous to the French, it will damp that
energy of republicanism in our new Congress,
from which I had hoped so much reformation.—
To T. M. Randolph. Washington ed. iii, 571.
(Pa., June. 1793)
