I shall obey the orders that your Excellency has sent me in your Letter of the 12 inst., as to the Demands I am to make for the artillery of siege. The Chevalier de Ternay has sent out a Cutter to get some news of the British fleet, and he sends me word that he waits only for its rentry to make his Frigates go out. André is dead with honor, Arnold’s life will be attended with infamy, his...
I receive this moment your Excellency’s Letter of the 14th inst. I have nothing new to send word of to you. The Frigate and the Person you know of, are ready to go away, and the Ch. de Ternay waits only for a set in wind, and a pretty fresh one to make them sail away. I beg of your Excellency to send the inclosed Letter to the Ch. de La Luzerne. We have had again a Visit of The Indians, of...
Since the 16th inst., the Frigate waits only for a fresh Northerly wind, it is not come as yet. The person and the Packetts were ready by the 14th. I do not doubt but the imbarkation from Newyork of the 16th that your Excellency mentions in your Letter of the 18th, has its destination for the South. It is most certain that if they are bound for this place, they play at blindman’s buff, for the...
I have the honour to send to Your Excellency a draught of our position that is pretty well taken of. The English fleet comes again to day to see us, we can see thirteen Square sails, at anchor between Block-island and Point Judith. I think that they will get into Gardner’s bay, by the first North wind. Our Admiral waits only for a fresh North-East wind to send of the Person that you know. The...
The Frigates and the person you know set sail yesterday under a very strong North East wind. May Almighty God conduct them, and may they arrive safe at their destination. I believe that the English fleet that was before us is returned to Sandy-hook; There is no appearance of its having got into Gardner’s Bay, because the Ships that were left there, according to the reports from New London, had...
I receive this moment, your Excellency’s favor of the 4th instant. We have had no news of our Frigate, and that is a good sign. Arbuthnot is in Gardner’s bay, It is thought, that he prepares to winter there. Yesterday and before yesterday a Ship of the Line and a Frigate came to Patrole, and are returned to Judith Point. We have entered our houses. The Lodging of the Troops has been made with...
The Marquis de La Fayette has wrote to the Viscount de Noailles his Brother-in-Law, and shows the Greatest desire to see him. I find his Demand so just, that tho’ I have given Leave to several of Our Colonels to go and wait on Your Excellency, I have added likewise the Viscount de Noailles, and the Marquis De Damas. If Your Excellency does not find a moment to come and see this part of your...
