To James Madison from Louis-André Pichon, 22 December 1802 (Abstract)

§ From Louis-André Pichon

22 December 1802, Georgetown. Acknowledges receipt of JM’s 21 Dec. note enclosing a memorandum of the funds the Navy Department claims from Pichon. “The 1st. item arising from advances made to the officers of the Berceau1 has been repaid to the United States by a deduction of so much made at the Treasury on the last moiety restored of the Sums captured on the Said officers.” Recollects that the last item was to be carried to the general account of expenses incurred for French prisoners. Will readily settle it when restitution of the French national ship Diane is closed.2
