Fleury to Abigail Adams

[salute] Madame

I had the honor of forwarding to you two months ago, some Letters of your husband, deliver'd to me at Paris; and two small pack's that I suppose to be silk handkerchiefs, or some goods of the same kind. I do not know if you have Receiv'd them. I beg you would inform me of it, that I could inquire after, if they are not in your hands.
There is I believe a french fregate, going soon for France; if you will send me, your and Mrs. Dana Letters, I shall take care of them. I have the honor to be with great Respect your most obedient servant,
[signed] Fleury,1 Regt. of Saintonge

1. François Louis Teissèdre de Fleury, a French volunteer officer, on whom see JA to AA , 24 March, vol. 3, above, and references in note there.
