Copie de la Lettre écrite à Mgr. Le Comte de Maurepas par Messire Le Min: Champigny, et de La Croix Général, Et Intendant des Isles du Vent..."Monsieur. Nous avons l'honneur de vous rendre Compte de La Situation des affaires des Srs. Payrac et de La Touche..." Peyrac and la Touche had equipped several boats for voyages to Spain, Louisiana, and the Isles Royales. When these proved unsuccessful, la Touche equipped another three boats and sailed off, leaving Peyrac as bondsman for the Bochart de Champigny and other creditors. When la Touche was not heard from and more debts fell due, Peyrac was so hard pressed by his creditors that he equipped some boats in secret and sailed for La Guayre. In the ensuing furor, some creditors threatened to press charges against the two, but the debtors' friends (also their creditors) bought off the more belligerent in the hope that word might come from Peyrac. In due time word did come aboard a ship loaded with goods he had sent to pay off part of the debts; he reported that he had made a very profitable trading agreement in La Goire and would send shiploads as payment. A committee was set up in St. Pierre, consisting of the Sieur de Sourlay and the Sieur de Testar[?] to regulate sale and distribution of goods and payments., Original digital object name: bei-m084, This digital resource is provided by the Special Collections, Hamilton College, Clinton, New York, United States., references to "Goire" and "port de la Goire" appear to be referring to La Guaira, Venezuela.
