7579. RIEDESEL (Baron), Jefferson and.—

I thank you for your kind congratulations;
though condolations would be better
suited to the occasion, not only on account of
the labors of the office [Governorship] to which
I am called, and its withdrawing me from retirement,
but also the loss of the agreeable
society I have left of which Madame Riedesel
and yourself were an important part. [433]
To Baron de Riedesel. Ford ed., ii, 245.


Baron Riedesel was then a prisoner near Charlottesville.
He commanded the Hessian troops in
Burgoyne's army.—Editor.
