Letter signed ("Necker") to Joseph-Marie de Barral, acknowledging receipt of the Barral's letter of 10 May, thanking him for "the details it encloses", and sending his respects to "Madame de Barral"
Paris, 1779. One page, in ink, in secretarial hand. Minor, light foxing. Framed, and accompanied by a mezzotint portrait by Levacher (framed), "Néker Ministre d'Ètat", (ca. 1797). Good example of the autograph of the famous Swiss-born economist and Louis XVI's Minister of Finance from 1777 - 1781 and again in the months leading up to the French Revolution, when he was caled back to the government to try to save the country from ruin. Interestingly, the letter was written shortly after the American Revolution of 1776. France's monetary support of the American cause (with Necker's strong support) in the midst of a financial crisis, became a major source of controversy, and none of Necker's efforts to keep the country afloat financially were successful. Necker's daughter was the famous writer, Madame de Staël.
