Autograph letter signed, addressed to M. Perronet. Saint Cloud, 17 May 1779, 1 page in-4°.
"I believe I must inform you Sir to remind you that there are two wooden arches of the bridge of St. Cloud that I was assured are very bad as the King passed there a short time ago that our princes pass there every day and that it is an infinitely essential passage to make them safe, if you want to see them by yourself I would be very comfortable to receive you at my place in St. Cloud where I am established and you will be able to see them. If you would like to see them for yourself, I would be very happy to receive you at my home in St. Cloud where I am established and to renew to you the assurances of the true and sincere attachment with which I have the honor of being Monsieur your very humble and obedient servant.
