MS (MHi); in a clerk’s hand, signed by Cathalan; on p. 2 of sheet folded to form four pages, with Cathalan’s Invoice of Items Shipped to Thomas Jefferson Randolph, 26 Oct. 1818, on p. 1, TJ’s Account with Cathalan, 30 Nov. 1818, on p. 3, and p. 4 blank.

n54 oil: presumably “54 pounds of oil net weight.” Inferring from other Cathalan documents, the abbreviation and symbol following macaroni evidently stand for “pounds net ancient weight of Marseille.” e. e.: “Errors Excepted.”

1Above this amount TJ noted: “.29¼.”
