Bordeaux June 25. 1807—
The box of Seeds for Madame de Tessé I have recd. and have written her as you directed me in your favor of the 21 Feby. The instructions she may send me respecting it shall be carefully followed.—We have a great dearth of news, and no intelligence from the armies—Letters from Paris say, that Preliminaries of Peace have been signed with Prussia but this information is not generally credited.—
With the highest veneration I have the honor to remain Your obliged & obt. Servant
