Sale of Louisiana?

As I understand it France, through Napoleon, received 15,000,000 dollars for the 'Louisiana Purchase' and it was all spent on the proposed invasion of Britain. Anybody know exactly (well almost) how this money was spent?

Tell me and I'll forget. Show me and I might remember. Involve me and I'll understand
