I. ® ,1S. COUn,ry residence with his family,
° * '.*.! 'v!7®r in P«r«. » f induced u*
to relinquish the idea of visiting L.« Grange for the
present; when some of our friends returns! from a
similar excursion, bearing to us a most friendly
note from the General, and expressing a hope that
we would visit him before going to Italy. Such a
.cmd and coidial invitation removed all doubts and
was promptly accepted.
. ?n.Lh®^rning ,he 27,h of December, we
took the Diligence for the village of Rose within
about two miles of which La Grange is situated.
forty miles in an easterly direction from Paris._
Our exit from the metropolis was through the
I .ace Royal, the Place Bastille, and the Place du
Trone; thence by the Barrier, Palace. a„d Fore-t
of V icennes, up the banks of the Morne, which is
one of the largest branches of the Seine, being
nearly as broad and deep as the river, in which i*t
loses its water and its name. In one place it
makes a circuitous route of several miles round a
htgh peninsula which is only half a mile across,
and through which a subterranean canal has been !
cut, navigable for boats. For the fimt few miles,
this route presented many interesting objects. Tne
palace of Vicennnes i« a large venerable pile, with
out much ornament, and occupied at present as a
state prison. Several events of some interest to the
tiaveller have transpired within its walls. Here
the two great Princes of Omule were imprisoned
tor years; and here Charles V. Cardinal Mazirine,
and Henry V. of England expired. The forest of I
Vincennes covers a large tract, consisting of a
small growth of natuial woods, through which
roads and vistas open in all directions.
At the distance of eight ar ten mile’s from Paris,
the road becomes dull, leading through an agricul
tural country not remarkable for its ferity, and
studded with little villages, which add nothing to
Us beauty. Midway in the journey, the Diligence
stopped at a small inn for breakfast or dinner, call
it which you will, as the bill of fare is generally
much ihe same, not even excepting soup. On the
plate from which I took my mutton clop, was a
representation of Gen. Lafayette on horseback, in
the attitude of storming a fortress, with the follow
ing inscription:
“ 11 s’el aiu-c le premier dam la Rcdnulte."
At a table on the opposite side of the room sat
a group of three ladies and a gentleman, whose
laces, dresses, and genteel manners attracted our
attention, and who were, as it was subsequently
ascertained, a part of Genera] Lafayette’s lamily,
going to town to attend the examination of a school!
But this was not the last of the curious incidents
which occurred at the hotel. A gentleman rode
rode with us from Paris to this place, in tiie same
department of the Diligence; without a word pas
sing between us, he taking us lor Englishmen, and
we supposing from his complexion that he was a
Portuguese or Spaniard. He turned out to be a
lieutenant in iheLnited States army, who was go
ing to La Grange on the same errand with our
selves.
| We readied the village of Hose nt 5 o’clock in
t.ie evening; and that no unnecessary claims might
be made to the hospitality of General La Fayette,
or his family subjected io any inconvenience, \vt
dined at the hotel, before taking a carriage and set*
ting out for La Grange, On arriving at the Cha
teau, the General gave us a warm reception, and
presented us to his numerous and interesting family,
consisting of a son, two daughters, and twelve
grand children, with a beautiful and accomplishet
daughter of Count Segur, together with two 01
three other inmates, making in all a circle of some
tiring more than twenty. Simplicity, politenesi
and a liability of manners, genuine kindness o
heart, and unaffected hospitality characterize th<
i whole group, from the patriarch himself down tc
the youngest of hi*descendant. They need onh
the American, name—a claim of nativity in tin
land of Washington and Franklin—to call forth all
the warmth and generosity of their feelings, mak
ing the stranger at once at home, and treating hitr
with the cordiality of a friend or brother.0 Tin
only uneasiness which the visitant experiences, oris
*f Irom a fear, that the proverbial politeness of tht
French, accompanied with all the enthusiasm o!
feeling, will subject the family to inconvenience*
on his account, and lead them to do too much foi
hif ha^pinc«9.
I he evoning glided away delightfully and a!mo«l
imperceptibly, in the midst of conversation on a
variety of topics, chiefly relating lo our country
»or the whole family talk, and seem to think of no
thmg else than the United States, where their feel
ings, their hopes, and iheir wishes all centre. The
General considers himself emphatically a citizen ol
the American Itepublic, and familiarly speaks of it
. • J ... v*jj, a# u lie ne nau been
there born and educated, lie receives a great num
ber of American newspapers, reviews and other
publications, and legitlarly correspond* with many
ot his frienJs in every part of the Union. These
various sources of information, perused with the
otmost attention, adned to the astonishing accuracy
of his abeet rations and recollections ot circum
stance* connected with his tour, render him better
acquainted with the condition of our country, than
almost any one of its actual residents: He has vis
ited every stale in the conledrrary under favorable
circumstances, having been introduced to the most
prominent individuals, and seen a large proportion
of the whole population in each. A package of
letters and papers had just reached him, and he
gave ti* a detailed account of events which were
new tout, and of an interesting character.
In the i*otir«e «»i the evening* he often reverted to
the scenes which he had visited, and to the friend*
w ith whom he had met and parted, with no expec
tation of ever seeing them again. Many anec
dotes were related, whirl, had escaped attention,
even in the voluminous leporte of our papers. 1 le
staled that during the thirteen month# occupied in
his tour, he travelled between rtftrm an<i grnm
trm thoutand mitt*) and that his health had l>c*n
greatly improved, instead of impaired, by the ne
ee^.,ry fatigues of such a constant scene of bu*.|*
and activity Jlefore he left home, he had been
troubled with a chronic affection, which had en
tire y disappeared; and hi* health is »s perfect a*
hts happiness at the result of his visit. I could ;
aot but feel a degree of pride anj pleasure, that our I
country had in any degree been instrumental in eon-!
nbutmg to the domestic felicity of SUrh a man and
;nrh. fam.ly, who nmil all, and if passible, more
hat, all (he gratitude and e»te,m they have recHv

• re ned taste, and a republican simplicity of

°.^?V*n,*n«e con,fort than to show; and
which could be compared in point of richness and
^plendor as the General himself remarked, with
wbat he lud gratuitously been made master of in
his tour through the United States. The orna
mentsate nearly all American. In the hall at the
head of the stairway, and forming the entrance to
he drawing room, is a portrait of General Wash
ington, with the colors of the frigate Brandywine,
(presented by Commodore Morris on his arrival at
Havre ) hung in graceful fcstn0„s around the al
most idolized picture. On the riithr as the father
ot his country, is a tine portrait of Franklin, co
pietl by one of the accomplished Brand-daughters of
» neral Lafayette. In a conspicuous part of the
halt, stands an admirable bust of President Adams,
presented by Mrs. Adams, just Iwfore the General
left M ashington. To the-e are added a portrait of
Commodore Morris, (taken by particular request,)
ami several pictures connected with the history of
our revolution.— The rotunda or drawing room,
contains, be-ides other decorations, a painting of
the siege of Yorktown, and a portrait of General
ad-worth, the revolutionary friend of Lafayette.
jA 1( o’clock, which is uniformly the hour for
retiring at La Grange, we took leave of the family
lor the night, and were shown into our bed-chain
,l’’vinS keen notified, that the ringing of
t le Chateau bell would summon us to breakfast at
< the next morning. Our apartments werein the
same style of neatness and comfort as the sitting
rooms, with a cheerful wood fire blazing upon the
hearth, and carpets covering the polished oaken
noor. As is usual in French houses, furnished
with tewer conveyances than this, each chamber
had a bureau, or writing desk, containing an am
ple supply of pen, ink and paper, together with
the other appendage* for scribbling, all under leek
and key. The temptations of such comforts, the
whistling of the wind round the Gothic tuirets and
antique, windows of the Chateau, with the delights
of the fire side reverie on the event* of the day” in
duced us to protract our waking dreams to a late
hour.
In the morning a grey headed servant, who is i
almost as old as the master whom he loves, and '
from whom he has imbibed his kindness of heart,
opened the door gently, and performed his ofiiee
of rekindl ng the fire, with such studied quiet, au
would scarcely disturb the slumbers of a sick bed.
We reached the drawing room in season, to see
the members of the happy family appear one after
another, and share the paternal kiss. Breakfast
was served up in a large lia]| on the grouud floor,
in the usual French style, with wine, ami coffee
a,ter the desert. I he table was crowned with
abundance, without superfluity; anil a circle of
smiling faces would have rendered a less sumptuous
repast agreeable. Among the rarer di-lies, w as a
kind of pie sent a^a delicacy to the General, from
some of his friends at Strasbourg.
After breakfast was over, we walked out in com
| p iny with Washington Lafayette and the whole
group of ladies, to ex-mine the exterior of the
i Chateau, and the farm, of which scarcely a glance
had as yet been obtained. La Grange was former
ly a fortified baronial cas le; and no’.wi listandin
tho inodilica ions it has unde?gone, much ol its
antique and feudal clnrac cr still remains. It was
once surrounded by a deep double moat, sections
j which fit.ed with wa'er, have been preserved,
and the rc-idue filled up either for the sake of
| health or convenience. The edifice eonsis s of a
centre, perhaps n hundred feet in leng’h with two
wings of about the same dimensions, and joining it
at right angles. From traces still vis Lie, a gallery
evidently extended across at the other extreu ily
Oi the wings, enclosmg a quadrangular courtyard,
stronglv del ended, with only one entrance under
, a lofty arch in the northern wall, guarded by a
! portcullis.
The Chiteau is three stories high, plainly con
structed of a hard and d*rk coloured stone, rendei
ed of a deeper line bv its venerable age w.d long
exposure to the climate. Two Gothic towers ol
a co ica! slope ri tt from the ends of each of the
wings, and form almost the only ornament. The
approach is by a winding avenue on the northern
side, leading through a thick grove of evergreens
and other trees, and tinder the arch alread/nien
tloned, around which hang festoons of ivy, planted
by the celebrated Charles James For, in one of I,is
visits to I>a Grange. 'Die beautiful plant j* ns
green as his men ory, and rai titles nearly the whole
facade of the Chateau. I s luxuriant foliage, shad
ing the grey walls, the thick cope bordering the
moat, ami the four antique turrets half concealed
by «he intervening branches, prerent a view on this
side, seldom equalled in an airy rural, quiet, and
unostentatious retirement. An artist from’ oui
Country has taken several veiy exact sketches ol
I*i Grange, plates of which Will hereafter be pub
lished.
As the morning was bright and pleasant, though
the ground jet verdant, was covered with a heavy
hoar frost, we made a circuit of a mile or tw'c
over the farm which is one of the largest, as wii
as the most complete, in France. It contains fivr
hundred seres, lying |n one body, in the form ol
a circle, with the chateau in the centre. Great
pains have been taken to round it off in this way,
by exchanges of contiguous territory. It is divi
ded according to the most approved models, into
| suitable proportions of tillage, pasture, end wood
land, with the minor compartments of gardens and
orchards. The General has planted Hirer thuumnd
apple trees, which are yet sum I, but thrifty, open
ing in vistas all over his plantation- He *i» much
engaged in ti,e cultivation of fruit of the belt
kind**
I hr «oil of tins large fr.-ief, though rot perhaps
remarkable for ios natural fertility, has been highly
improved by culture, a-H yield* wheat wiih oti.rr
agricultural products in abundance. It is finely
wooded and watered. Half a mile from the house
in the direction of Jlose, there isa large and living
fountain, cradled in a green vatu, end she.lered
from the sun in summer by a groVc of verier*!,!,,
oaks. Its limpid waters at this eeasen, repose on
a bod of autumnl leaves, and areas pure a* they are
copious. From this rural and requeatered retreat
a distant view of the chateau on one *i le, and of
two little villages, with a spire to each,’ and the
smoke curling above them, on fhemhrr, makes a
•PjiH and cheering picture No; far from the hum
an., \\ ashmglon La Fayette, (whose name ner
baps f somewhat too familiar !r for the sake ol
distinction.) !* much engaged in construe'lag an
ice house, upon the plan of some of those l»e
in our country. In «ho,t. nearly all the improve
ments ol I,i Grange, now in progress, are acco.d
