"Against Russia, which they considered, but ultimately declined, after other Polish representatives in Japan maintained it would be a fool's errand, and in particular I'm talking here about a guy called Roman demovsky, who emerged as the leader of right-wing Polish nationalism, and who would be a long-standing political rival of pilsudski, even as they both work towards the same goal of Polish independence. Pilsudski then returned to Poland and formed a paramilitary unit that was active all throughout the 1905 revolution. They led strikes and demonstrations, but also bombings and assassinations. Invariably directed at Russian interests, but his group also occasionally clashed with Damascus national Democrats. After the 1905 revolution, pilsudski moved away from his old socialist comrade to maintain a sole fixation on Polish independence. He spent those post 1905 pre World War I years fixated on independence through armed revolution. He ran a paramilitary group that continually assassinated Russian officials and engaged in revolutionary expropriation, like the Russian Bolsheviks, which is to say they were armed robbers. Operating in between the nationalists on one side and the socialists on the other, pilsudski tried to hold himself aloof from all parties, though he seems far more antagonistic towards the right-wing national Democrats than the left wing socialists. In the lead up to World War I, he had moved over to the Austrian part of Poland and with their apparent permission, organized sporting clubs that were ostensibly about hunting, but which were actually about regular rifle training for future deployment against the hated Tsar. By 1914, pilsudski sporting clubs numbered 12,000 members, and they were a de facto Polish legion ready for service. Pilsudski himself entered the war under Austrian auspices to fight the Russians on the eastern front, and served with distinction over the next several years. In 1916 he was critical in the push that forced the flagging Germans and Austrians to declare an independent kingdom of Poland. They finally agreed to this in November 1916 mostly to Garner more polish recruits for their armies, and they absolutely expected this thing that they declared to be the kingdom of Poland to be nothing more than a puppet state. Pilsudski and his colleagues, however, considered this the first step to real independence. Pilsudski himself was invited to serve as minister of war of the new Polish government, but in the summer of 1917, with the defeat of the central power seeming like a real possibility, bilsky started unshackling Poland from their puppet strings. He forbade Polish troops from swearing a loyalty oath to the Central Powers and was promptly arrested and tossed into the magdeburg fortress, which had once upon a time been the prison of the Marquis de Lafayette, which I discussed on pages 301 to 303 of hero of two worlds the Marquis de Lafayette in the age of revolution, but you know I just had to jam that right in there..

"Talking to Bill, Federer Bill, you just shared an amazing story about the hero, the missionary, adoniram judson. I did not know the story that you just told that he had become an atheist. And then the man who led him into atheism took his own life within a few feet of judson. I mean, you can't make that one up. No, it's powerful story. Do you want to become a missionary? He was the first foreign missionary to India, but really to Burma. And started a missionary movement in the early 1800s called a haystack revival and 5000 young people went out to missionaries around the world. Hawaii, the Caribbean. It was sort of like all the woke energy today. Imagine that being harnessed to go around the world and spread the gospel and start schools and start mission orphanages and medical clinics. And it changed the world. Unfortunately, that young person and energy is harnessed for the destruction right now. Anyway, so Timothy Dwight, during this time, he takes over as president of Yale. And from some reports, there's like no professing Christians in the student body, which is only a couple hundred students. And rather than him sitting his ivory office, he would come down at the lunch table. And he would listen to the students, say all their skeptical stuff. And after he would listen patiently, he would say, okay, I listen to you. Now you listen to me. And one by one, he would refute every one of their arguments. So much so that within a few years, virtually the entire student body became Christian again and a good percentage of the students went on to become ministers and missionaries themselves.

"Worked. The idea of being a missionary is imperialistic in that you're just spreading out around the world showing up and telling the locals, guess what you're wrong. Here's the good news. At first it was just religious. Later on those missionaries descendants, it became political. So the political, the military strategic value of Hawaii wasn't seen at first, but it came in later. Right. And then we've got illiterate populace. Yeah, it's possible that, you know, by the 1830s, the Hawaiian Islands were the most literate place on earth. Is that right? Possible. Bestselling author Sarah owl is our guest on travel with Rick Steves. She investigates the drama behind the americanization of the Hawaiian Islands in her book unfamiliar fishes. Sara also describes how after a particularly nasty presidential election, France's Marquis de Lafayette helped to heal a divided United States in her book Lafayette in the somewhat United States. So 1898, Hawaii becomes a colony. Did they join us, or did we annex them? We annexed them much to their dismay to the native dismay. And then move way ahead to when was it that hawai became a state? 1959. Was it pretty enthusiastic? Everybody wanted to get on board or was there. There's always been a healthy segment of the native Hawaiian population who has never considered the annexation much less statehood a legitimate act and still to this day protest the annexation and statehood. To this day. Oh, yeah. The sovereignty movement. I hung out with a lot of these people. They were very instrumental for me in terms of doing my research because I learned so much from them, like a lot of people who have a bone to pick with history. They're very well informed and they're ready to share their knowledge. What do you meet these people? I went to some of their meetings. They have meetings. Really? They have protests. So there's a recognition of their ancestral independent past. For sure. And they keep that alive, and what's the British flag doing on the Hawaiian flag? There's a little tiny union Jack in it isn't it? There was a period where the Hawaiian royals at some point, you know, that was their first contact with westerners was the British Royal Navy when James cook quote unquote discovered the Hawaiian Islands when he landed on Kauai. And there was a period when the Hawaiian monarchy was much more enamored with Great Britain. I think they weren't the United States. Right. And also they were the marner one of them was in touch with Queen Victoria and they had that the monarchy in common..

"Hello and thank you. For joining the american revolution today. Episode one eighty four machines and barren hill for the last couple of weeks. I talked about the british occupation of philadelphia and the experience of the local militia immediately outside of philadelphia during the winter of seventeen. seventy seven. seventy eight take away from that. Is that the british were secure in the city and that the militia were not terribly helpful and nearly got wiped out at the british attack. Crooked billet the only thing that prevented the complete destruction of the militia was the men's ability to run and hide over that winter. The continental army was focused on. Its own survival out. At valley forge and not interacting with the british very much at all americans real enemy that winter was the chronic shortages of just about everything despite the shortages the army was drilling under baron von story been and hoping to emerge in the spring as a credible fighting force with the pennsylvania. Militia dispersed following crooked billet and with the coming of warmer weather. General washington grew concerned that the british might attempt at offensive on valley forge itself to make sure this did not happen. He deployed a division to move closer to philadelphia to keep an eye on the british and he handed command of this division of continentals to major. General lafayette i recall that the marquis de lafayette had been a continental officer for less than a year. The nineteen year old french army captain with zero combat experience had received a commission as a major general based primarily on his willingness to work without pay. And the hope that his family connections with the french quarter might help to secure the much-needed alliance after he had first joined. Lafayette served as an aide to general washington. Certainly an honorable position but not one normally performed by a major general after all he was serving alongside two colonels alexander hamilton and john lawrence washington genuinely liked the young man but was not sure he was quite ready to command an entire army at brandy wine. Lafayette showed bravery under fire and received a battlefield injury this help to enhance his reputation with both washington and the continental congress the injury however meant that lafayette spent the next couple of months convalescing up in bethlehem pennsylvania when he returned to duty in november washington assigned him a small independent command. Lafayette lenny minor raid on british camp and gloucester new jersey near philadelphia. Something i discussed earlier episode and that was enough to win command of a division after congress dismissed major. General adam stephen for his conduct at germantown washington gave lafayette command of that division after that congress assigned lafayette to lead a new offensive to retake quebec..

"He knew that any couple of power-play opposing the Inspector General or the board of war or any of their plans with just play into the hands of his enemies and convince people that he was a danger to civilian rule instead Washington just through the whole thing back at Congress. He despatched the correspondence that had gone between himself and General Conway as well as correspondence with General Gates dead. Out the revelation of Conway's comments to him and sending this information to Congress. He said the following quote if General Conway means by cool receptions that I did not receive him in the language of a warm and cordial friend. I readily confessed the charge. My feelings will not permit me to make professions of friendship to a man ID My Enemy at the same time truth authorizes me to say that he was received and treated with proper respect to his official character and that he has no cause to justify the assertion that he could not expect any support for fulfilling the duties of his appointment. So Washington found that while he had his critics in Congress, he also had supporters and one of those key supporters was the new president of Congress Henry Lawrence. Communications with his son John Laurens who was serving as Washington's aide-de-camp held president Lawrence to appreciate everything Washington was doing and thought he was going through following Washington's letters came on Memorial sent by 9:00 Continental brigadiers who objected to General Conway being promoted over them just as Washington predicted in addition a group of Colonels protested Wilkinson's brevet to Brigadier over more senior kernels with more command experience saying the strong objections from the military leadership and also after reviewing the correspondence that made Gates Conway and Wilkinson all look, like fools any support for replacing General Washington office quickly evaporated Gates and Conway both testified before Congress, but gave a poor performance the Marquis De Lafayette took it upon himself to speak on behalf of birth. France before Congress. He said that the French viewed Washington and the revolution as one in the same. They could not conceive of another General taking command numerous other Continental officers also sent letters to Congress confirming that Washington had their full faith and support as commander-in-chief with Washington's role as Commander. Now firmly re-established everyone tried to make nice again.

"For just 99 cents until 11 am price of participation may vary. Anna Mae Duane, she is joining us on our program. And should be very interesting discussion, talking with us about the publication entitled Educated for Freedom, the Incredible story of two fugitive schoolboys who grew up to change a nation that's quite a title. It's nice to have you join us. First of all, Thank you so much to be here in your background. Your associate professor of English director of the American Studies program at the University of Connecticut, you've edited several previous titles, authored Suffering Childhood in Early America. Why this book at this point in your work? Um, it wasn't a plan. Actually, sort of this'll work kind of jumped out at me by accident. It came out of my other work. I consider myself a historian of childhood. I've always been interested. In trying to figure out what it was like to live as a young person in the past, and it's a particular challenge to try to get to those records. Way often Don't preserve the records that Children make right. We put our kids We'll work on the refrigerator, and then it goes away. After a month or two. It seems very ephemeral on and I was just Sort of poking around in the archives, and I came across the words New York African Free School in the 18 twenties and my ears and eyes opened up and because I was surprised, too Come across a school for African Americans in the 18 2040 years before the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation, And in these records were these incredible record of performances, skits. Pieces of work that kids from nine to about 14. Have done in the 18 twenties, and I just started reading their work. And I was absolutely hoped to just give one quick example of the sort of thing I found in there. I found Portrait of Benjamin Franklin. I found addresses to the Marquis de Lafayette, yet one of the kids got to meet the Marquis de Lafayette. But there was a speech of a valedictorian and the first half of it was very standard. Exactly what you'd expect. Sort of very proud to be here. Thanks to my parents, my teachers, etcetera, but the second half It takes its completely different tone. He laments that it doesn't matter how smart he is how hard he works because the country is so white with prejudice is never going to succeed. And I was just struck by another one. What was it like to be that kid to be this talented 14 year old young man on a stage in front of your parents and benefactors? Saying, You have a feeling this hopeless and what was going on at the school that you had both sort of incredible talent and incredible. Anxiety through double nous. And then once I started Searching. The names of the Children showed up in the records. It turned out. They went on to do incredible things. So the two men I write about one of them was in a lot of these little skits and records. She was a star student. Was James McCuen Smiths and he is the first African American to earn an M D, uh, the other person who I trace their friends throughout their lives to duel biography, Um Henry Highland Garnett, who goes on to give speeches to thousands of people and actually is the first African American To address sitting Hall of Congress. But she does Azi send the 13th amendment abolishing slavery up for ratification. So I had no idea what I was looking at. When I just sort of stumbled on these records is based have grabbed me by the collar and and didn't let me go for 10 years As you're telling the story you were departing from what some might view is standard practice. When doing something that's biographical in nature. Why did you do that? But so ah, lot of times I think of biography we get, you know, maybe the first chapter on childhood and then we get the jump on you like the big important things you do has grown up at that history with a capital H. That's the important stuff. Yeah, And I think even in the musical Hamilton, right, you get a couple of numbers whether wife killed Children are there but it's you know, the big stuff is separate. And I just found that wasn't Kate, one that when I found them as Children, so that for me was really striking difference that you know these were Children that when they went and gave their school reports Lose papers. National press came out because the stakes are so high. There was so much investment and seeing what they could do. Um, so they were from the beginning playing a part in history, and then it is traced their lives. I just realized That their political activism there Professional careers there. You know what they did when they were in the halls of Congress was absolutely shaped by both their own Children. And this sense of They were doing it for a future. No one had yet seen like they're imagining a freedom right there. Still slavery in the United States in like the last page of this book? So for them. Their political vision was about Children. It was it seems silly to me to put childhood intact ER one And don't leave it behind and then you know, just realistically. One of the things I came across in my research I find astounding is throughout the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries the majority of the country was under 21. It was always a young country that more Children than older folks doing all the stuff that we read about. I mean, the revolutionary War has lots of what we would consider now, child soldiers, So for me is returning. Or turning a lens on young people seemed the natural and accurate thing to do When trying to tell their stories. There was a certain tension that seemed to be fairly constant surrounding this question of colonisation between the two of them. What was that, like? Yeah, that was again something that I found a bit surprising to this to, really When I sort of pulling on the contradictions in the school. This is what emerged. The colonization. What is one of those things you like? Please think of a footnote in history. It was this idea of Thomas Jefferson wrote about it. It becomes too institutionalized. A few years later, 18 17. Ah, and it's very much finds it hard and exactly the contradiction of that valedictorian that the school itself had been created by Alexander Hamilton and John Jay and founding fathers. Out of this optimism that education could make everyone equal that the country can change and evolve on DH. Then the second half is like this coming up against a lack of imagination, and what's happening by 18 17 is even sort of right minded, conservative, liberal minded white abolitionist. Can only go so far. They're like they believe slavery is a moral evil. But they can't imagine a country where the actual equality so they can't get past it. Okay, Freedom And then what? And they have no idea about Then what And the solution they come up with is colonization. Is this sense that OK, well emancipate people and then mass emigrate them to Liberia. The change of location changes. Sometimes it's like area for much of the time. Africa. Sometimes they think South America But in any case, we're going to give you your own colony. Goodluck will press you. No rewind on history will pretend this whole thing never happened on DH. It'll work out best for everyone. Oh, and this. This is one of the you know in that title,.

S. P. N. like sort of this is your lifestyle game with sports celebrities we're down there doing this undisputed really corny thing but again like framing is everything and one thing freestylers supreme does very very well and this is a woman in the bonds of the show is that like is another space where Corning S. is is okay in some ways in in all ways as long as it's real as long as it's honest as long as it's virtuosic right so we're doing that and Tommy described to me this show lens working on others writing this like you know rap musical that Alexander Hamilton as an at the first thing I said to him was that's a terrible idea also my first reaction everybody's first reaction it's a horrible pitch for a show and especially if you know anything about rap music right it's like it's even worse than because all you can hear in your head is the lack the advertising for is the is the lack history to hip hop right it's like if this stupid ploidy trying get kids to read your thought Shakespeare was the original wrapper right turns out you know and but I he all he was like well when you come up to faster and is open a workshop of it and I asked him if he would pay me and he said yes so I said absolutely I don't have any money send me the stuff and then Lin sent me all of his demos which is all him doing every part of every song with like beats teammate this before Alex I can wear I had fully orchestrated everything so like a lot of them were just like sort of kick snare and like horrible piano sound style because he had made on garage band and they we were so good the music was so good and it is because it was honest has a lan who is an incredibly virtuosic writer and performer didn't pretend to be anything that he was saying he is that I have a man who is a nerd about history and a nerd about rap songs and this was both of those things stuck together with as many historical references that I didn't catch as there were hip hop references that I did it you know and so because of that when even when listening to those early versions of these those songs are just like this is so it's so good yeah I'm totally down to be part of this terrible idea and I didn't think anybody else would like it like I you know you do a lot of things with your friends that you're like this is brilliant and no one cares this is like a not gonna be another one of those things really get I'm totally down for this ride I'm a do this this really dumb idea for a show of my friends because it's a good show that should exist and they want me to be in and that's amazing and then it was.

sixteenth and also this bright things this American speaker this man who has experiences of this fresh Republic sweeping away the old first thing has to do is deal with his account he's told by his lawyer that he has to go on austerity budget why well you know it's one of the one of the myths about Lafayette is that he bankrupted himself in the American revolution well it is true that he spent a lot of his own money in the American revolution but equally true is the fact that he spent a lot of his own money on wigs and horses and carriages and gambling an opera boxes and his accountant at one point tells him essentially that he has to rein in this extravagant spending if he wishes to leave anything to his children of course his idea of reining in is to build a money pit a Laura has recovered what she can because I take it the house that he built or had built for him cause enormous amount of money he had to sell some of his property that was actually making money so that's why he keeps falling farther and farther behind by seventy eighty seven there is a house that resembles the one that he built you set you described it as a horseshoe what is the house lights yes there's a house that's actually directly next door if you picture a horseshoe Lafayette house was one half of the horseshoe in the house that still standing is the other half of the horseshoe so it's a mirror image you describe it as six rooms of floor with the household servants lived in the attic US a monostable behind room for fifteen horses and four carriages and he lived or spent all of his time in the grand cabinet what was that well this was sort of like what we would call his home office and this is where he greeted visitors it's where he he met with distinguished gentleman and tended to discuss politics discuss matters of science and what I found most fascinating about how he chose to decorate that room was that he chose to fill it with mementos of his American time so for example he asked Benjamin Franklin's grand son to have made up for him a copy of the declaration of independence which Lafayette had engraved in gold and which he hung above his desk and he had dinner parties lots of dinner parties that were well attended I've copy down in my notes because you gave us an example of the card that you would receive from from the Lafayette Adrienne is them is that the hostess at these events and everybody likes her a lot in fact there's a little note from Abigail Smith I believe saying a French lady who's fond of her husband triple exclamation point but in any event this is what you receive and Franklin got so many of these there in his in his library the marquis de Lafayette has the honor to present his compliments to and then your name and begs the favor of his company at dinner Monday next and then the date and they would have these large dinner parties and be celebrated in Paris as the American you had a long and what I love about this cards which Lafayette had engraved is that they were written in English so he had engraved cards written in English exclusively to invite Americans to Monday dinners because Monday was American day the puzzle here we are in Paris now it's seventeen eighty four eighty five eighty six eighty seven Lafayette has money has a great deal of income but he's fallen behind he has to cut back you know not so many horses or not so many gifts to your friends does he at this point feel or believe that he's more American than French does he write about this in his letters as he has it as he as he senses himself he's maturing in the world he was not it was about a boy before what does he think of but now yes well you know it's true he does start to write to Americans using the pronoun out our he refers to himself as an American and in fact there's this wonderful quote from an American explored in John lectured who is visiting in France at the time and he wrote that Lafayette has planted a tree in America and sits under its shade at her side and Lafayette encouraged as he's very far away from his adopted landed in courage is this and the Americans encourage him to stay close why what was in it for them at this point well there's something that was very practical in it for them which is that he basically threw himself wholeheartedly into serving as America's foremost spokesperson in France so for example he ended up doing things like negotiating favorable trade treaties on behalf of Americans a man who had no prior knowledge of trader economics or anything is suddenly studying the finer points of a well oiled import yes I noted that he was a it was a one man trade commission is trying to find something that the Americans could sell to the French without tariffs he was trying to convince the French that they shouldn't send their absolutely high and manufactured goods much more reasonable brought cloth of a detail there is a half French half all night a young man whose name is difficult to burn and chip CAP Tochi Capt and that's tragic it is tragic so when Lafayette is in visiting the Oneidas as you mention to seventeen eighty four he negotiates with the family of this young man to have him to allow Lafayette to bring the young man back with him to Paris in order to serve as a quote unquote favored servant so Peter up the cat comes back to Paris with Lafayette Jefferson rights of him they all remember him they remember meeting him there and impart he's sometimes dressed in friend clothing we know this because we actually have a tailor bill in which Lafayette's purchasing French closing for him but we also have reminiscences from others who describe this young native American man performing war dances and so forth at the request of Lafayette the young man lives with Lafayette for several years and then he returns to America when he returns to America so when he was in France to sort of held as this remarkable specimen of of of native American ancestry when he returns to America he's Marvel that as a native American who speaks French and dances tragically he dies quite quite young either of pleurisy or alcoholism yeah not clear in ninety two Lafayette is is embracing America at the same time the French one entertainment there something of a carnival atmosphere about this one more detail before we move on to the hearth that we know as a hat Lafayette has mistresses you've tracked down what has been for several centuries known but isn't much written about I guess the French wouldn't be shy about this they just don't write about front Lafayette the Americans don't the one that interests me the most is Contessa whose husband kills her it kills himself over the affair well apparently so because she kills himself he kills herself you would think that that would ended and it notes that he breaks off with tragedy but they go on to they continue to correspond with each other later on so she becomes one of his interlocutor yes they become very close friends at the very least we don't know precisely more than that and this is that's what was odd about that remark about the French lady who's fond of her husband another words everybody understood in the year of write arrange marriages that man would also have mistresses so what's ahead of this is the the crisis we understand and when we come back we'll turn to the

"I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. Laura retails? And he's been through the American revolution. Celebrated for hundreds of years. He returns to Paris, however to build himself a house. And to be a courtier in the with Louis sixteenth. And also this bright thing this American speaker this man who has experiences of this fresh Republic sweeping away, the old first thing he has to do is deal with his account. He's told by his lawyer that he has to go on austerity budget. Why? Well, you know, it's one of the one of the myths about Lafayette is that he bankrupted himself in the American revolution. Well, it is true that he spent a lot of his own money in the American revolution. But equally true the fact that he spent a lot of his own money on wigs, and horses and carriages and gambling and opera boxes and his accountant at one point tells him essentially that he has to rein in extravagant spending. If he wishes to leave anything to his children, of course, his idea of reining in is to build a money pit Laura has recovered what she can because I take it the house that he built or had built forum cost an enormous amount of. Money. He had to sell some of his property that was actually making money. So that's why he keeps falling farther and farther behind by seventeen eighty seven. There is a house that resembles the one that he built you said you described it as a horseshoe. What is the house like, yes, there's a house that's actually directly next door. If you picture a horseshoe. Lafayette's house was one half of the horseshoe in the house. That's still standing is the other half of the horseshoe. So it's a mirror image. You describe it as six rooms of floor with the household. Servants lived in the attic a modest stable behind room for fifteen horses and four carriages and he lived or spent all of his time in the grand cabinet. What was that? Well, this was like what we would call his home office. And this is where he greeted visitors. It's where he he met with distinguished gentleman and tended to discuss politics discussed matters of science, and what I found most fascinating about how he chose to decorate that room was that he chose to fill it with mementos of his American time. So for exam. He asked Benjamin Franklin's grandson to have made up for him a copy of the declaration of independence, which Lafayette had engraved in gold, and which he hung above his desk, and he had dinner parties lots of dinner parties that were well attended. I've copied down in my notes because you gave us an example of the card that you would receive from from the Lafayette's Adrian is the is the the hostess at these events and everybody likes her a lot. In fact, there's a little note from Abigail Smith. I believe saying a French lady who's fond of her husband triple exclamation points. This is what you'd receive and Franklin got so many of these there in his in his library. The Marquis de Lafayette has the honor to present his compliments to and then your name and begs the favor of his company at dinner, Monday next, and then the date, and they would have these large dinner parties and be celebrated in Paris as the American and what I love about this. Cards which Lafayette had in grave does that they were written in English. So he had engraved cards written in English exclusively to invite Americans to Monday dinners because Monday was American day, the puzzle here, we are in Paris. Now, it's seventy and eighty four eighty five eighty six eighty seven. Lafayette has money has a great deal of income, but he's fallen behind. He has to cut back. You know, not so many horses or not so many gifts to your friends. Does he at this point feel or believe that he's more American than French? Does he write about this in his letters as he has as he as he senses himself? He's maturing in the world. He was a boy before what does he think of now? Yes. Well, you know, it's true. He does start to write to Americans using the pronoun out. Our he refers to himself as an American. And in fact, there's this wonderful quote from the American explorer named John legend who is visiting in France at the time, and he wrote that Lafayette has planted a tree in America and sits under its shade adverse. I and Lafayette encouraged this he's very far away from his adopted land encourages this and the Americans encourage him to stay close. Why what was in it for them at this point? Well, there was something that was very practical in it for them. Which is that he basically threw himself wholeheartedly into serving as America's foremost spokesperson in France. So. For example. He ended up doing things like negotiating favorable trade treaties on behalf of Americans a man who had no prior knowledge of trade or economics or anything is suddenly studying the finer points of well oil import. Yes, I noted that. He was a one man trade commission. He was trying to find something that the Americans could sell to the French without tariffs. He was trying to convince the French that they shouldn't send their absolutely high end, manufactured goods, much, more reasonable broadcloth a detail. There's a half French half on night, a young man whose name is difficult to Pernet OSHA keto cat, and that's tragic. It is tragic. So when Lafayette is in a visiting the Oneidas as you mentioned in seventeen eighty four he negotiates with the family of this young man to have him to allow Lafayette to bring the young man back with him to Paris in order to serve as a quote unquote favored. Servant so Peter out. The cat comes back to Paris with Lafayette Jefferson rights of him. They all remember him. They remember meeting him there and impart. He's sometimes dressed in front clothing. We know this because we actually have a Taylor Bill in which Lafayette's purchasing French clothing for him. But we also have reminiscences from others who describe this young native American man, performing a war dances and so forth at the request of Lafayette, the young man lives with it for several years. And then he returns to America when he returns to America. So when he was in France who's sort of held as this remarkable specimen of a native American. Ancestry when he returns to America. He's marveled at as a native American who speaks French and dances, tragically. He dies quite quite young. I've heard pleurisy or alcoholism clear in ninety two. Lafayette, is is embracing America at the same time, the French want entertainment. There's something of a carnival atmosphere about this one more detailed before we move onto the horror that we know as a head Lafayette has mistresses you've tracked down what has been for several centuries known, but isn't much written about I guess the French wouldn't be shy about this is just don't write about front, Lafayette, the Americans don't the one that interests me. The most is a contest whose husband kills her. It kills himself over the affair. Well, apparently, so because she kills himself. He kills herself. You would think that that would end it notes that he breaks off with tragedy. But they go on they continue to correspondent with each other later on. So she becomes one of his interlocutor. Yes, they become very close friends at the very least, we don't know precisely more than that. And this is that's what was odd about that remark about the French lady who's fond of her husband. In other words, everybody understood in the year of arranged marriages that men would also have mistresses. So what's ahead of us is the the crisis we understand.
