This letter was sent from England to Paris and was addressed to “Monsieur Charles Achman”, the chamberlain of count Adam Ludwig Lewenhaupt (1659-1715), a Swedish diplomat. 

In Paris, Achman’s friend John Smith received the letter. He believed that Achman moved to The Hague with his employer and forwarded the letter. Unfortunately, Smith was also mistaken: Hugo van der Meer, Simon de Brienne’s deputy postmaster, noted that Achman “was not in The Hague”.
