Passy, March 4. 1782


I have followed your kind Advice in acquainting M. le Comte de Vergennes & Mr. le Ms: de Castries with our Difficulties in finding Vessels. Mr. Vergennes was so good as to promise he would speak about it to the Marquis; and the Marquis has very obligingly promis’d to do all he can for us and I hope we shall succeed. I therefore request you would order the Remainder of the Goods, which I understand are still at St. Denis to be forwarded as fast as possible to Brest. The Alliance had not receiv’d my Orders to go there when she sailed on a Cruize; but being now return’d I suppose she will go directly to Brest to take in what She can. With great Esteem, I have the honour to be, Sir, &c

M. de Veimerange.
