[To John Bondfield]
[dateline] Passi June 3. 1778
Two days ago I had the pleasure of your Letter of the 26 May4
inclosing an Account of Cash and Payments made to and for me, at Bourdeaux, amounting
to 1404 Livres, in which Sum it ought to be remembered, are included the Expences
of Captain Palmes, Dr. Noel and Mr. Jesse Deane at Bourdeaux and from thence to Paris,
as well as my own, excepting 231 Livres and six Sous paid to Dr. Noel by an order
on the Banker at Paris, for the ballance of all Expences.
Your Letter incloses also an Account of sundry Articles of Merchandizes shipped by
you in a Trunk for my Family, to the Amount of 888 Livres and twelve Sous, which Sum
together with your Commissions please to charge to the public Account, as you propose,
and I will be responsible for the Money here. I am much obliged to you, Sir, for your
Care in this Business and am your most obedient Servant
