From Henry Champion

L’Orient, 21 Feb. 1787. Received TJ’s of 16th and immediately called on Bérard, who said TJ had already written him [i.e., his brother Simon Bérard on 16 Feb.] “respecting the Box of Plants left in his hands by Captn. Sionville”; that he had the box; and that he would forward it by the first diligence. He expects TJ will hear from Bérard this post.

RC (MHi); 2 p.; endorsed: “Champion for Loreilhe.” TJ recorded this letter in SJL as being dated “Feb. 1” and received 26 Feb. 1787.
