Numerous biographers of Paul Jones do not agree in their estimates of the motives that prompted the Commodore to let the AlIiance go so easily when he had in his hands full power to stop her, at all hazards. Most of them take the view that he was actuated wholly by impulses of humanity that he knew or believed Landais, backed and encouraged as he was by Arthur Lee, would make the effort to get out in defence of the French authorities.
