Bruxelles, 24 juillet 1781, manuscript letter on paper, written in ink, in-4°, (4) pp (3 blank) , written in French, very neat handwriting, signed by Crumpipen. Mr. Crumpipen, on behalve of Prince de Starhemberg and upon a request of emperor Joseph II invites Charles Proli for a visit to M. de Casier (and) ''le tresorier général'', together with his business partners and Mr. Boltz, to further discuss Proli's request made at the emperor. Letter written on the crucial days between July 23rd and July 26th 1781 when Charles Proli and his partners agreed with Mr. Boltz ; in accordance with the emperor's wish, to form the '' Aziatische Compagnie '' - '' Compagnie Aziatique ''. Proli's old partner Boltz, from whom he was estranged, had the ships and the licence to trade from Leghorn (Livorno); while Proli could provide the financing. This deal led directly to Proli's bankruptcy. (see at length ''Houtman-Desmeth '', Charles Proli, Antwerps zakenman en bankier, (Academie, 1983), pp. 144-147). Provenance; from the archives of Charles de Proli ; photostat of a typed letter from 23 May 1945 refers to Theophile Smekens who was still occupied with Proli's bancruptcy in the late 19th c. ( see Denucé, Antwerps Archievenblad 2e reeks, 7 , 1932 nr.1). We have other archive records relating to Charles Proli and the ''Société Impériale de Trieste pour le commerce Aziatique'' on offer.
