3213. FRANKLIN (William Temple), Office-seeking.—

Can nothing be done for
young Franklin? He is sensible, discreet, polite,
and good-humored, had fully qualified as
a Secretaire d' Ambassade. His grandfather
has none annexed to his legation at this Court
[Versailles]. He is most sensibly wounded at
his grandson's being superseded.—
To James Monroe. Ford ed., iv, 8.
(P. 1784)
