Scope and content
Group of three manuscript documents concerning the settlement of an estate.
The letter is from M. Clarval (Clarvau?) to M. Gentilat, the toyal notary in Jeremie, inquiring about the effects of the late M. Ferron. The letter writer believed le pauvre diable had left him a portfolio containing 150 gold portugueses.
That letter is enclosed within the report of a process verbal about the extensive search made around M. Ferron's cabin with the assistance of several people, including "le negre libre conducteur des travaux." A few coins were found but not the portfolio.
The outermost document, enclosing two others, summarizes this result and accounts for the disposal of M. Ferron's possessions.
