Paris, 1 Aug. 1792 . The Duc de Penthièvre has recommended Monsieur de La Mariniere, who requests for his daughter-in-law, Madame de La Mariniere, an introduction to the best company in Baltimore, where she has taken refuge from the calamities of Saint-Domingue.

My last was of the tenth of July. Mr: Livingston, who is on his way to America, presents an opportunity of writing, which must not be neglected, altho’ I am engaged at present in Examination of the account received from the Commissioners of the Treasury. I have already mentioned to you, Sir, that the whole of this account is open, and I must now observe that I do not find myself particularly...
In reading over my Letter of Yesterday I find that I omitted to mention the War with Spain . Truth is that it was a Matter so much of Course and of so little Importance that it escap’d my Recollection. Our Commissioners will doubtless turn it to Account. Last Evening I was inform’d that the french Army in Flanders has been defeated but as this is not an official Account I meerly mention it as...
Paris, July 30, 1792. “My last was of the twenty third. I am now favord with yours of the same Date. I receiv’d Yesterday the Account from the Commissioners of the Treasury and as I suppos’d it contains a Credit for the Antwerp Payments at the Current Exchange.

I have just now written to Mr. Le brun (who by the bye is en État d’arrestation ) a...
Accept at this late Period my Congratulations upon your safe Arrival in America. I know not whether to add the farther Congratulation upon your Appointment to and Acceptance of the Office of Secretary of State because the latter is not yet ascertained on this Side of the Atlantic. You will find enclosed a Paper from your friend Sir John Sinclair to whom you was so kind as to introduce me. Pray...
Your letter of the second instant did not reach me until yesterday afternoon. I am afraid that the delay may be attended with some ill consequence, however I have given the necessary directions for payment of one million, six hundred and twenty five thousand bank florins to Messrs. Hoguer Grand and company, which at the exchange you have mentioned, is equal to six million of livres. I hope...
Paris, August 6, 1792. “My last was of the thirtieth of July since which I am without advices from you. I have agreed with the Commissioners of the Treasury for the present and in Consequence I pray you will give our Bankers an order to pay to Messrs. Hoguer Grand and Company the Sum of one Million six hundred and twenty five thousand florins banco and desire them at the same Time to send me a...
Paris, August 20, 1792. “Yours of the seventh was long in coming probably mine of the 9th. was equally delayed. You will find by it that I had agreed with the Commissioners as to a pretty considerable Payment on that Day. The Events of the tenth ought not I think to make any Change in that Disposition. I think your Reasoning is good as far as it goes and if the Powers to me had been sufficient...

Colo. Ternant however will give you every Information respecting the Decrees of the Assembly affecting our Commerce and the like —This he will do confidentially as a man of Honor at least so I...
