There is correspondence between Pierre Raynal of Charleston, South Carolina and M. Goujaud, Paris. Goujaud and Dumoustier directed the office set up by the French government, 1830-1834, for the settlement of claims and indemnification of estates lost in the uprisings of Santo Domingo. In his correspondence, Raynal attempted to liquidate his claim there. Also included in the collection are genealogical notes. All original correspondence is in French, but is accompanied by xeroxes of English translations.
