4358. LAFAYETTE (Marquis de), Gifts of Land.—[further continued].

I hope Congress is prepared
to go through with their compliment[to
Lafayette] worthily; that they do not mean to
invite him merely to dine; that provision should
be made for his expenses here, which you know
he cannot afford, and that they will not send
him back empty-handed. This would place
us under indelible disgrace in Europe. Some
three or four good townships in Missouri, or
Louisiana or Alabama, &c., should be in readiness
for him, and may restore his family to the
opulence which his virtues have lost to them.—
To President Monroe. Ford ed., x, 294.
(M. 1824)
