New-York, oct. 18. 1806
Marc Antoine Alexis Giraud, Commissary of the Emperor of France for the Eastern States, residing at Boston, has many years been one of my Subscribers. Mr: Giraud Called at my Office on the 16th Inst. to direct the discontinuance of his Paper to Boston and to order it to be Sent to him at Lexington, Kentucky, Where he informed me he was going to riside all winter. As this Change of residence may be political, I have deemed it my duty to inform you of it.
I am your obt. Servt.
