I certify that I have charge to the special account of Benoit Chapoton as of October 9, 1818, the sum of eight pounds (current New York Exchange), having to pay this sum myself to Charles Larned for the protection of the land of the church of Ste. Anne. Furthermore I have charged to him at the same time the sum of one pound, eight shillings (current New York) which I have paid to Mr. James Abbott myself for the transfer of several papers which have been sent to M. the Bishop, amounting in all to the sum of the nine pounds, eight shillings (current New York), which I have to pay as a result of the information which I have received from Messrs. Pierre Chene and Francois St. Aubin as how [?] money in the hands of M. Morice [sic] Moran belonging to the corporation of Ste. Anne - in order to replace this sum which I have to pay, on March 24 and May 11, 1817. But I have not yet received my money. Thus that which remains is still charged against Mr. Benoit Chapoton as here below [sic] mentioned. Detroit, June 19, 1823.
