ALS in French, signed “Lafayette,” one page, 6.5 x 8.25, July 31, [no year]. Letter concerning a financial arrangement, in part (translated): "I am very sorry that I was not able to see Mr. Noel during his very short visit in Paris. I now have the honor of sending him Mrs. Spitzer's certificate of existence which she sent to me from Lisbon in order that I may deliver it personally to Mr. Noel. His friendship and concern have inspired in her much appreciation for him. I have reason to believe that Mr. Noel could render her another great service if he could manage to reimburse her, and send the money to Lisbon within a period of three or four months. In case it is not possible for Mr. Noel to do so himself, the financier who takes care of my son's funds and my own, could handle the transaction by lending the necessary funds to Mr. Noel." In very good to fine condition, with scattered light foxing, and light show-through from some old mounting remnants on the back.
