From Francis Osborn

[Charly], 5 Sep. 1788. Unknown to TJ and ashamed for her request, she is in want, lives in a remote, cheap place, and asks him to send “any relief let it be never so small” in care of “Monsieur Pinondel directeur de la poste aux Lettres a Charli, pour remettre à Madame Osborn.”

[In postscript:] “I am old and shall not be troubleso[me]. I confide you are too much a Gentleman not to keep my secret.”

RC (MHi); 2 p.; endorsed.
