Rare one page Document Signed "Marie Antoinette," 9.5" x 14.5", December 31, 1788. Beautifully matted and framed, with a smaller framed image of Marie Antoinette, to a finished size of 24.5" x 23.5". The document, which is written entirely in French, is addressed ?To the Chancellor?s Secretary, Reward, 100 pounds, This last month 1788, Treasurer General,? and goes on to command, ?...we want to have and be told what the State has decided for the maintenance and food for several of our officers during this year. You will pay in cash to the Secretary of Lord__our Chancellor, the sum of one hundred pounds which we have granted him in this season in consideration of the service he has provided us with quality during the past six months. This letter to you should suffice and allocated as an expense against our account by our dear and beloved treasurer of the King, our honored Lord and Husband in Paris, whom we beg and ask to do so without difficulty.?
