    It says: " French general in the US to go back to France through Le Havre (a french city) on the ship called the Burgundy commanded by the Captain Wooten"
    Looks to be issued by the French consulat in NYC on the 23rd of november 1841

    Thanks.
    How does this explain the passport being issued to a 27 year old American? I added the image from the front...
    Thanks again...
