4378. LAFAYETTE (Marquis de), Washington and.—[continued].

For Lafayette my heart
has been constantly bleeding. The influence of
the United States has been put into action, as
far as it could be either with decency or effect.
But I fear that distance and difference of principle
give little hold to General Washington on
the jailers of Lafayette. However, his friends
may be assured that our zeal has not been inactive.—
To Mrs. Church. Ford ed., vi, 454.
(G. Nov. 1793)
