From Madame de Colmare
[Paris, 23 Aug. 1787]. Holds a “Billet de banque de Philadelphie” which she wishes to redeem, although she can ill afford to suffer the loss which the depreciation on the note occasions; since TJ expressed an interest in helping her and inasmuch as he is best informed on this matter, she encloses the note and asks to be informed of the exact value at which it can currently be redeemed.
RC (DLC); 2 p.; in French; endorsed; date supplied from entry in SJL of the receipt of a letter from Mme. de Colmare on this date and TJ’s reply. Enclosure returned in TJ’s reply of this date, following.
