As the Commerce is now open between France and America, the Residents here no longer make Purchases of Goods for that Country, but leave those Matters entirely to private Merchants. I thank you nevertheless for your kind Offers of Service, and I have sent your Proposals to Mr Jonathan Williams, an American Merchant establish’d at Nantes, who may possibly have in time a considerable Demand for your Manufactures. I have the honour to be, Sir, Your most obedient & most humble Servant
