Hello. I need help with these documents, I need to understand what is written here. I would be grateful if you understand at least some words. I am not asking for a translation of the text, I am asking you to understand what is written in French

  • Sorry to inform you that this type of question is not allowed. No text translation. Explanations can be asked about very short sentences, phrases and of course words. Translation of very short sentences and phrases from a foreign language are allowed, specially from English, but nothing else. All translation from French to English is forbidden. however such problems might be solved sometimes using the chat (Chez Causette).

  • I am still learning about these sites, and I did not know this was not allowed. I have deleted my answer.

    There's no translation involved that I can see, and a good knowledge of historical French can help decipher this document and vice versa. I think it's okay to let the question develop and see if anything interesting comes of it. You can undelete your answer if you like.

    I’m voting to close this question because it is a request to transcribe an image of unspecified origin and this cannot possibly help anyone else. (In contrast, a question asking about the transcription of a clearly identified manuscript that other people might wonder about could be suitable for this site.) Dec 9 '20 at 15:55

Providing some context about these documents might help figuring out what some missing parts are, might also broaden the interest of your question and thus reduce the reluctance to accept it some users expressed.

Anyway, here is an attempt for the first document:

enter image description here

Vous comprendrez sans doute cher ami, qu'il ne nous reste (en Crimée?) que de jouer ce double rôle dans l'état déplorable ou nous nous trouvons à Petersbourg, et il me parait qu'on y est entièrement (attendus?) pour les (finances/femmes?), et que même la question d'incompétence commence a inquiéter fortement le gouvernement, qui ne trouve pas les moyens de la terminer convenablement. Venu de bien loin je n'entend certainement que des bruits éloignés, aussi je ne peux rien dire positivement, mais arrivé à Petersbourg, je m'empresserai de vous faire part avec le premier courrier de toutes mes observations.

Another one ends with:

Département de basses Pyrénées.

    Where did you find them and why do you want to be able to specifically read them?
