This note was written by an amanuensis at Versailles, France, and pencilled notes indicate that it is signed by the Marquis de Castries (1727-1801) when he was Marechal de France. The letter is sent to Madame la Comtesse de Renty at the Convent de la Roquette, Faubourg, St. Antoine in Paris and is an acknowledgement of her request for payments, which are in arrears, and instructs her how and where she may receive what is due her.
