7542. REVOLUTION (French), Riots.—

We have had in Paris a very considerable riot,
in which about one hundred people have been
probably killed. It was the most unprovoked,
and is therefore, justly, the most unpitied catastrophe
of that kind I ever knew. Nor did the
wretches know what they wanted, except to do
mischief. It seems to have had no particular
connection with the great national question now
in agitation.—
To William Carmichael. Washington ed. iii, 22.
(P. May. 1789)
