Translated by Fr Brian Quin SM, September 2015

Cf. introduction to doc. 195.

Bay of Islands, 11 October 1842

Reverend Father,
According to the instructions that reverend Father Épalle has brought you, I am drawing on you or on the allocations for 1841 and 1842 up to the limit in question. We will soon adopt a quicker and safer way of recovering the funds allocated each year to this mission. So I am making available to you a second draft in favour and to the order of Mr Wilson, amounting to three thousand two hundred and sixty- two francs, and drawn in triplicate.
With respect and gratitude I have the honour to be,
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.
