Folio, 4 pp. Bifolium. Text clear and complete. On aged and creased paper, with some wear and chipping to extremities. Previously folded into a packet docketed in a contemporary hand 'Answers to Queries'. The first page begins with 'Ansr. 1.', a list of ten ministers, from '1. The Duke of Richelieu President of the Council of Ministers & of the Privy Council & Min: Sec: of State having the Dept. of Foreign Affairs.' and ending with '10. Director general Count Pradel'. P. 1 also features 'Question 2 | Answer A', beginning 'The Members of the Govt. are principally persons who have been in the service of Buonaparte'. P.2 has 'Question 11', on the 'Rent of Land', and '2.13' (in two columns) on poor rates. P.3 is in two columns, and touches on 'The Revenues of the Army', and 'the relations of the Gallican Church with the Pope' ('desirous of increasing the number of Bishopricks'). The last page carries 'Answer. No. 3.', on the salaries of ministers. Written in a hand at points tantalisingly similar to that of the Duke of Wellington. N° de ref. de la librería 9981
