Says Knox is far from doing her justice. Tells him he "must be convinced how much I have sacrificed, to come to such an amical settlement." Hopes the paperwork will not slow the settlement down. Says "all what I ask is, to be able to give Surety to my acquirors, this is what I take to heart, I rather would risk my life, than to engage them in an operation which would be ruinous to them." Hopes no new articles will be inserted in their agreement, as the French settlers have spent everything they have to settle in America. Wants her countrymen to have an asylum of peace.
