This thoroughly documented volume relates the fascinating story of the French Legation in Austin. Built in 1840-1841, the house served as the residence of the French chargé d’affaires to the fledgling Republic of Texas. It is the city’s oldest house. Alphonse Dubois, the self-styled “Count de Saligny,” dazzled frontier Texans with elegant parties at the French Legation for less than a year in Austin before returning to France.
