Storyline

Following the surrender of the British, John secures a long sought loan from the Dutch and returns to Paris to oversee the peace treaty. John can no longer bear his absence from Abigail and invites her to Paris, which immediately overwhelms her with its opulence. John is appointed ambassador to England, but soon longs to return home to participate in the formation of the new government and, like Abigail, to be reunited with the children. They return home to an overwhelming welcome, and John reluctantly returns to public service. Written by David Foss
