4371. LAFAYETTE (Marquis de), Promoter of commerce.—[further continued].

The Marquis de Lafayette
goes hand in hand with me in all these
[commercial treaty] transactions, and is an invaluable
auxiliary to me. I hope it will not be
imputed either to partiality or affection, my
naming this gentleman so often in my dispatches.
Were I not to do it, it would be a suppression
of truth, and the taking to myself the
whole merit where he has the greatest share.—
To John Jay. Washington ed. ii, 228.
(P. 1787)
