In September 1791, Roland's mission being executed, they returned to Lyons.
Roland became a member of the Jacobin Club.
In person Madame Roland was attractive though not beautiful; her ideas were clear and far-reaching, her manner calm, and her power of observation extremely acute.
When the crisis came the Girondists were ready, and on the 23rd of March 1792 Roland found himself appointed minister of the interior.
A letter was penned by Madame Roland and addressed by her husband to Louis.
