5567. MOUSTIER (Count), Attachment for.—

Fortune seems to have arranged
among her destinies that I should never continue
for any time with a person whose manners
and principles had excited my warm attachment.
While I resided in France, you
resided in America. While I was crossing
over to America, you were crossing back to
France; when I am come to reside with our
government, your residence is transferred to
Berlin. Of all this, Fortune is the mistress,
but she cannot change my affections, nor
lessen the regrets I feel at their perpetual disappointment.—
To Count Moustier. Washington ed. iii, 199.
(Pa., 1790)
