Reverend Father
Still keeping to the same instructions, I am informing you beforehand that today I am drawing from the allocations of 1841 and 1842, the sum of eight thousand four hundred francs, to the order of Mr H Thompson and Co, and in triplicate. We will soon make arrangements to bring, safely and quickly, the funds allocated to this mission.
I have the honour to be, with respect and gratitude,
Reverend Father,
Your most humble and obedient servant,
