Major Pierre L'Knfant. said the ambassador, had been selected by Washington -because during 13 years of association he had many occasions to appreciate his qualities. The French" officer, however, he said, al though gifted, plucky and energetic, was difficult to handle. 1Knfant had been one of the earliest enthusiasts of tin' American cause served through out the war of independence and had b t u left on the battlefield severely wounded at Savannah where he had left tne vanguard of one of the col umns of the attack and lost two tl.lrds of Ills men.
