Authorial notes

[The following note(s) appeared in the margins or otherwise outside the text flow in the original source, and have been moved here for purposes of the digital edition.]

* The amount of Livres here stated, exceeds somewhat that which was stated in No. I, of my last report,11 It will be observed, that it was then mentioned, that the details of this transaction were wanting. They have since been received, and correspond with the present Statement. The difference arises from the real rates of exchange, at the times of the respective payments having been different from what was assumed by analogy, as a rule of computation.
