He has been asked to recommend certain claims that have been laid before the Assembly; de Coulougnac & Co. have obtained a settlement of their accounts, and they beg a resolution fixing the manner and time of payment; M. Chevalier desires an answer to his petition; encloses a petition from the Beauvais merchants; stopping the payment of that money to M. Penet may easily be done, but they are suffering for the want of it, and request that a mode and time be appointed for their reimbursement.
