4871. LOUIS XVI., Character of.—[further continued].

The King loves business,
economy, order, and justice, and wishes sincerely
the good of his people; but he is irascible,
rude, very limited in his understanding, and religious,
bordering on bigotry. He * * * loves his Queen, and is too much governed by
her. * * * Unhappily the King shows a
propensity for the pleasures of the table. That
for drink has increased lately, or, at least, it
has become more known.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. ii, 153. Ford ed., iv, 393.
(P. 1787)
