Formal orders of the French government require Turreau to insist on the dispositions stated in his official letter of 14 Oct. regarding the commerce that some U.S. residents maintain with the rebels of Saint-Domingue.

§ From Louis-Marie Turreau. 13 January 1806. Acknowledges JM ’s letter of 6 Jan. , to which JM attached a copy of his 26 June 1804 dispatch to Pichon.

Thirty French inhabitants of the Île de France contracted with Captain Morth, commander of the U.S. ship Mammoth, to transport them to the island at a cost of 2,700 francs per person.

§ From Louis-Marie Turreau. 8 February 1806, Washington. Reports that the marqués de Casa-Yrujo, extraordinary envoy and plenipotentiary minister of His Catholic Majesty, informed him that the American ship Leander, armed with eighteen cannons and long employed in the odious commerce of Saint-Domingue, had boarded many guns, carbines, lead, gunpowder, pikes, saddles and other war stores, a...
§ From Louis-Marie Turreau. 11 February 1806, Washington. Official reports confirm what he had discussed with JM in their last meeting. A very large armed ship, the Leander , left New York harbor several days ago. Its apparent destination is Jacmel, but its cargo and the sort of men on board suggest another. An adventurer by the name of Miranda is aboard, and a number of lost souls accompany...
§ From Louis-Marie Turreau. 12 February 1806, Washington. Felix de Beaujour, commissary general of French commercial relations, has provisionally named Honoré Felix de Douzy vice commissary of Rhode Island, a position vacated by the resignation of Mr. Lequinio.

§ From Louis-Marie Turreau. 15 February 1806, Washington. Is required after the formal request of the marqués de Yrujo, and despite what JM has told him about JM ’s communications with Yrujo, to send JM this letter that Yrujo wrote and which should be of great interest. Has no doubt that JM will be impressed with the frankness and candor that Turreau will attach to all the steps to which he...
§ From Louis-Marie Turreau. 18 February 1806, Washington. Returns the enclosed exequatur that JM obtained from the president in favor of M.
