Last night I was reading over Miss
Bloom's3 letters, and came upon one of her best4. In writing to a French scholar5, I said something about
Washington's6 tactful treatment of
"the impetuous and romantic young Marquis de
Lafayette7." Bloom wrote it
Marquis D. Lafayette!
Can you beat it? To a Frenchman!
