To John Bondfield
Paris Novr. 29. 1786
I have the honor of inclosing you a copy of a letter from the Count de Vergennes. It will shew you that such orders have been given by the Controller general as leave a free exportation to the articles for which I lately forwarded you the passeports. I am Sir, with the most perfect consideration your very humble Servant,
PrC (DLC); in Short’s hand, including signature; at foot of text: “(Test W Short Sec).” Enclosure: Vergennes to TJ, 26 Nov. 1786.
