Several of your letters have been received, and we have been occupied in endeavours to have you discharged: but these have been ineffectual. If our information be right, you are mistaken in supposing you are already condemned. The Farmers general tell us you are to be tried at Brest, and this trial may perhaps be a month hence. From that court you may appeal to the parliament of Rennes, and...
I have received your letter of Sep. 19. with your Log-book and other papers. I now wait for the letter from your lawyer, as, till I know the real nature and state of your process it is impossible for me to judge what can be done for you here. As soon as I receive them you shall hear from me. In the mean time I supposed it would be a comfort to you to know that your papers were come safe to...
I have received your letters of Sep. 28. and Octob. 3. but no information is yet received from your lawyer, so that I am utterly uninformed of the nature of the process instituted against you, and the court in which it is depending. Till I receive this I am unable to obtain advice how to interfere for your relief. That you may not suffer for want of money, I will advance for you what may be...
I have received your letter of the 14th. inst. It was not till the 8th. of this month that I could obtain information from any quarter, of the particular court in which your prosecution was instituted, and the ground on which it was founded. I then received it through the hands of Messrs. Desbordes at Brest. I have sent to the count de Vergennes a state of your case, of which the inclosed is a...
I have duly received your letter of the 2d. instant. The delays which have attended your enlargement have been much beyond my expectation. The reason I have not written to you for some time has been the constant expectation of receiving an order for your discharge. I have not yet received it however. I went to Versailles three days ago and made fresh applications on the subject. I received...
[ Paris, 5 Mch. 1786. An entry in SJL under this date reads: “Asquith. That order for his discharge is promised and will be forwarded by Mr. Short.” Not found; see TJ to Vergennes, 28 Feb. 1786.]
When I left this place for England I had no suspicion that any thing more would be necessary on my part for your liberation. Being but lately returned I could not sooner acknowlege the receipt of your several letters of Feb. 20. Mar 20. Apr. 10. 21. and May 1. I this day write to Messrs. Desbordes to pay the charges necessary for your enlargement, to furnish you with a guinea a peice, and to...
