Chaillot Jany 24th 1779


Mr Monthieu’s Accounts & papers were at Passy when I saw them last.

The public Accounts were there also & if they do not remain there still, I apprehend Mr Grand has them, the large one being signd by Mr. Deane which he therefore wished to keep. But I am confident you had a copy of it, & that he will tell you the same. The only public Papers in my possession of those you request are Mr Deane’s Remarks which I have the honor of enclosing.

I have the honor to be Sir, your most Obedt Hble Servant

A. Lee
