10 October 1842— Bishop Jean-Baptiste-François Pompallier to Father Jean-Claude Colin, Bay of Islands

Translated by Fr Brian Quin SM, September 2015

Cf. introduction to doc. 195.

Bay of Islands, 10 October 1842
Reverend Father,
Following the instructions that Reverend Father Épalle will have brought to you, I am drawing on the allocations of 1841 and 1842 up to the limit in question, which will be a long way from equalling the total of only one of these years’ allocations. So today I am making available to you a draft drawn up in triplicate, to the order of Mr J Dunn, amounting to three thousand four hundred and twenty four francs, forty centimes.
I have the honour to be, with respect and gratitude,
Reverend Father,
Your most humble and obedient servant,
+ J(ean) B(aptis)te F(ranç)ois Pompallier, Bishop,
Vic(ar)-Ap(ostolic) of Western Oceania.
