“Paris 25 Germinal AN 6 (14 Avril 1798)
je vous ai adressé hier , citoyen, le Lieutenant Kilg dont la situation me paraissait intéressante et les réclamations justes. J'apprends dans ce moment des détails d'un autre genre et l'on me fait des plaintes graves qui exigent un prompt redressement.
Je suppose qu'il se présentera encore chez moi ou chez le Citoyen Laperrière.
Vous me ferez plaisir de le faire prévenir à l'un ou à l'autre bureau, de se rendre chez moi sur le champ et après l'avoir interrogé je prendrai de concert avec vous s'il le faut des mesures pour qu'il paye ses dettes criardes et n'en fasse plus de honteuses pour ses camarades.

Je vous salue.

(signé) MAX CAFFARELLI
