- "Gilbert was tall and had red hair." https://books.google.co.uk/books…

- "At this period of his life, the Marquis de Lafayette was a noble looking man, notwithstanding his deep red hair. His forehead, though receding, was fine, his eye clear hazel, and his mouth and chin delicately formed; exhibiting beauty rather than strength." quod.lib.umich.edu/m/moa/AAM7015.0001.001…
