8374. TERNANT (J. B.), Shifting affiliations.—

When Ternant received certain account of his appointment, thinking he had
nothing further to hope from the Jacobins, he
that very day found out something to be offended
at in me (in which I had been made
ex officio the ostensible agent in what came
from another quarter, and he has never been
undeceived), attached himself intimately to
Hamilton, put on mourning for the King, and
became a perfect counter-revolutioner. A few
days ago, he received a letter from Genet, giving
him a hope they will employ him in the army.
On this, he tacked about again, became a
Jacobin, and refused to present the Viscount
Noailles, and some other French aristocrats
arrived here. However, he will hardly have
the impudence to speak to me again.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. iii, 549. Ford ed., vi, 240.
