Col. to the 57th Regiment) lived in Paris with the King's permission and died there last February; since then the seals of government have been put upon his effects, and if they are taken off before he has the chance to appear and make his claim, the whole property will be confiscated; hopes the duke will, under these circumstances, allow him to go to France.
