To an unnamed addressee, probably Juste Vernouillet, director of the publishing house Lachâtre & Co, about the last part of the translation of "Das Kapital": "Cher citoyen, J’ai reçu hier de la part de M. Roy la fin de la traduction. Il faut lui donc payer le reste des 1500 frs que j’ai avancés (à M. Lachâtre) pour sa rémunération. Ma santé est à peu près rétablie et M. Lahure recevra bientôt une bonne partie du manuscrit [...]" ("Dear citizen, yesterday I received from M. Roy the end of the translation. Therefore he has to be paid the rest of the 1500 frs which I have advanced (to M. Lachâtre) for his payment. My health is nearly restored and M. Lahure will soon receive a good part of the manuscript [...]").

With a notarial inventory mark. Tiny holes; lower margin slightly frayed.
