4338. LAFAYETTE (Marquis de), Busts of.—[continued].

The first of the busts of
the Marquis de Lafayette will be finished next
month. I shall present that one to the city of
Paris, because the delay has been noticed by
some. [279]
To Governor Henry. Washington ed. i, 514. Ford ed., iv, 135.
(Pa., 1786)


Jefferson, in behalf of the Commonwealth of Virginia,
presented a bust of Lafayette to the City of
Paris in September, 1786. Carlyle, in his history of
the French Revolution (Book v, chapter 8) refers to
this bust as follows: “But surely, for one thing, the
National Guard should have a General! Moreau de
Saint-Méry, he of the `three thousand orders', casts
one of his significant glances on the Bust of Lafayette,
which has stood there ever since the American
War of Liberty. Whereupon, by acclamation, Lafayette
is nominated.”—Editor.
