Physical Description
A. L. S. In French. 2 pp. Fo
Description
Acknowledging a letter of the 9th, he says it is true as M. de St. Priest has reported, that the old translation of the agreement with the Porte is imperfect; on this account he engaged the Sieur Deval to make a new version, his object being not so much to control the demands of the dragomans, as to judge rightly of the propriety of the demands which his ministry obliged him to make at Constantinople; although the affairs of the Levant and Barbary ports are simpler, he believes that Deval's translation will prove useful to M. de St. Priest; he has but one copy, which he will send to the Duke immediately on his return to his country house.
