        Lettered with title and address 'Se vend à Paris sous le passage du Chatelet', which is probably fictitious.

    De Vinck identifies the persons as Boucher d'Argis, who demanded the prosecution of those involved on the march to Versailles, and abbé Grégoire and Pétion. The investigations at the police headquarters at the Châtelet led nowhere.
