E2. Extract of a Letter from Lafayette to Gallatin

(Tozes 7, p.427)

Paris, July 5, 1821

My dear Sir,
This letter will be delivered by M. Vogoridei the Grecian citizen who since the departure of M. Piccolo has been pleased to confer with me on the affairs of his interesting and so abominably treated country. Sensible as he is of your interest in behalf of its cause and inhabitants, he much wishes an introduction to you, my dear Sir, and I feel myself happy in promoting your mutual acquaintance.

Most affectionately and respectfully

(Hatzidimitriou 39)
