I read a novel Babouk for a Latin American history class my junior (3rd) year of undergrad. The story was based on an uprising in Haiti around the time of the French Revolution. Louis and M-A were cameos in this novel. They were unreceptive to the delegation about the situation in Haiti.

There was no slavery in France, unlike England and America. When Thomas Jefferson brought his slaves with him from Virginia to Paris, they were technically free once on French soil, and he started paying them wages. Also, racially mixed marriages were allowed in France, unlike America. There were no miscegenation laws.
