1793 (1 August) bill of exchange for 1,796 livres of France or 2,625 livres of the colony received for furnishing lead shot [cannon balls?] to the artillery. Fine state of preservation.

Notes: Between 1791 and 1804 the Haitian Creole opposed French colonial rule in Saint Domingue. This bill is surely related to the ultimately unsuccessful efforts of the French to quell the rebellion.
