I know of no new Order being given relating to the Action against M. Peltier.2 I never heard of any being commenced against you. I am at present confined by the Gout: but should be glad to see you when convenient to you, that I may better understand the Affairs between us. I have the Honor to be with much Esteem &c—

M. Beaumarchais
