A propos de ce titre

From Library Journal:

Short was a young man of tremendous promise. Well-to-do and well connected, he was elected to the Virginia Council of State at age 25, and several years later went to France as Thomas Jefferson's private secretary. Though he served as U.S. fiscal agent in Europe and was minister to Holland and to Spain for short periods, he never fulfilled his promise as an American statesman. Sidetracked by a love affair with a French noblewoman, he ignored Jefferson's advice to return home and run for office. While his friend, and another of Jefferson's proteges, James Monroe, served as U.S. senator, governor of Virginia, and finally U.S. president, Short became more and more estranged from American politics, hoping that Jefferson's influence would procure his appointment as U.S. minister to France. He hoped in vain. This is a serviceable biography, marred in spots by repetitiveness and the author's overstated claims for the importance of Short's career. For research collections. --David B.
