From André Limozin

Le Havre, 16 Oct. 1787. Since his letter of 14 Oct. he has learned that only six of the crew of the ship Elephant are Americans; has taken them under his protection and advanced their legal expences; the admiralty court has awarded them their wages and the customary allowance for their return to America and has ordered the English master of the vessel to pay the legal expences; is happy “to have procured justice to these poor fellows.”

RC (MHi); 2 p.; endorsed. Recorded in SJL as received 19 Oct. 1787.
