Be pleased to pay to M. le C. de L. 2750 livres in full for all rent due or to become due for the house I hold of him till the determination of our lease which is to be on the 16th. of Apr. next according to our agreement of this day, of all which this order and his receipt will be witness.

Dft (DLC: Short Papers); on scrap of paper bearing this notation at bottom and upside down: “so as that this may be it’s translation”—presumably an instruction to Short to translate, but whether it pertains to this or to some other document cannot be determined; at foot of text TJ made calculations for the amount of this order; verso contains notes concerning the conversion of the “Dutch debt … into dollars.” Undated, but date established from following entry in Account Book under 10 Oct. 1788: “Gave Ct. Langeac order on Mr. Grand for 2750livre tournois rent in full to the 16th inst. and notified that the lease should finish Apr. 16. 1789.”
