Content DescriptionDescribes General O'Donnell as the "most ungrateful of men"; the Marquis Turgot had obtained the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour for him, yet he opposed the Queen's wish to confer the Golden Fleece on the Marquis, to create him a Grandee of Spain before his departure or to confer decorations on any of his staff; now a consular convention between Spain and France has less chance of being obtained.
