From Zachariah Loreilhe

L’Orient, [3] Aug. 1787. Has sent Grandhome, an officer in the Royal Marine, two packets left by Mr. Barclay to be forwarded to TJ by a safe opportunity; asks TJ to acknowledge their receipt. “Mr. Barclay Sailed yesterday, with a fair wind, for Tercera and Boston.”

RC (MHi); 2 p.; endorsed by TJ: “L’Oreilhe.” Recorded in SJL as received 7 Aug. 1787, together with a letter from Thomas Barclay, 2 Aug., and from William F. Ast, 3 Aug. (both missing), which were probably the “two Packets” enclosed.
