    Third Bill of Exchange 800 Livres 1758

    Quebec, (LC)- French Regime Third Bill of Exchange 800 Livres Oct. 2, 1758 Charlton UNL
    This serial number 36 example is hand-dated the year before Quebec fell to British forces during the French and Indian War. It measures approximately 238 by 180mm. A translation of the hand-writing in the top margin is "on account for expenses of the war." The printed and hand-written (in italics) text translates as, "Sir on Twelfth April 1760 it will please you to pay through this third letter of exchange, my first or second not having been paid, to the order of M. the official the sum of Eight Hundred Livres for value received in acquits. For which sum I will render an account on the expenses of the Navy of this Colony. I am, Sir Your very humble and very obedient servant, etc." The Bank of Canada Collection contains the Second of this Bill of Exchange. The third party label reports that this piece has been repaired and therefore the net grade is Very Fine 30 Net. The repairs were nicely done to fill in several small splits along the horizontal center fold.
