Salcedo, Manuel de
New Orleans, (Louisiana)

to (Father Thomas Hassett)
(New Orleans, Louisiana)

Salcedo encloses a copy of the letter sent to him by the Colonial Prefect, (Pierre Clement de Laussat). Salcedo has not the slightest doubt that the information given to the prefect lacks foundation; however, Salcedo takes this opportunity to warn that no imprudent action be taken which would compromise national honor. Hassett's zeal and religion are to Salcedo a secure guarantee of scrupulous conduct and he will so assure this official in order to quiet his misgivings.

Laussat, (Pierre Clement de)
New Orleans, (Louisiana)

"Germinal Year"

to (Manuel de) Salcedo
(New Orleans, Louisiana)

Laussat tells Governor Salcedo that he has heard from several sides that the religious corporations have the idea that they will be permitted to take away some of the church vestments or vessels when they leave their establishments. As Salcedo knows, all public property, be it royal or communal, is included in the surrender of possession of the colony into their hands according to the treaties binding their respective governments. They would both be remiss if they tolerated anything to be deducted. Andre Lopez Armesto (adds that) this is a copy.
