To R. & A. Garvey
Paris Dec. 11. 1786.
I have now the satisfaction to return you the Acquit a caution No. 113 you were so kind as to enter into for me. The copying press being a prohibited article, has occasioned a considerable delay in obtaining it from the Douane. It was not till yesterday I was able to withdraw your acquit a caution. I thank you for the trouble you have taken herein and am Sir your most obedt. & most humble servt.,
