DUSUAU, Francis Emanuel Frederick, Count de Lacroix, statesman, born in New Orleans, La., 1 January 1801; died in Paris, ]?rance, 1 September 1836. He was the son of Francis Dusuau De Lacroix, founder and president of the bank of Louisiana. At the age of fourteen he was intrusted to the guardianship of Bishop Dubourg, of New Orleans, who took him to France and placed him in the academy of Abby Liautard. He showed remarkable ability in his studies, and on their completion entered the bureau of the department of foreign affairs. During the ministry of the Baron de Damas his talents and activity placed him in the first rank among the pupils of the diplomatic school founded by that statesman. He afterward became secretary of the cabinet in the ministry of Prince de Polignac, and in 1830, during the three days of July showed courage and skill in performing a difficult mission entrusted to him by Charles X. After the accession of Louis Philippe he threw himself with ardor into the cause of the legitimists, in whose interests he made several journeys to England, Holland, Italy, and Portugal. He entertained Don Carlos at the time of his journey to Paris, and was decorated by him with the order of Charles III. During the intervals of his grave occupations he took part in editing the "Benovateur," and contributed political articles to the "Quotidienne." In 1834 he published a translation of a work by Colonel Hamilton, "Sur les hommes et les mceurs des EtatsUnis." He had planned several important works, which his premature death prevented him from accomplishing.
