Paris, March 11th, 1793.

Gilbert Jones Esquire, London.

And believe me very truely
Your Obedient humble Servant.
Jos. Castiaux."

Then the Witness informed the House, "That in consequence of the above Letter he applied to the Secretary of State's Office for a Passport for Joseph Castiaux, and sent it to him on the 22d of March last, but that he had not heard from him, nor can the Witness learn that any Person, before in the Habit of corresponding with him, had heard any thing of him since, neither the Person with whom he lodged, nor any Body else."

Being asked, "If she remembers Mrs. Martin being brought to Bed at Brompton?" she said, "Yes, she was present at the Birth of the Child, which was a Girl; that she was brought to Bed on the 20th of February, the Witness well remembering the Day from the Circumstance of her setting out for Paris the Day following."
