<Versailles, June 20, in French: I have received a letter from M. Schweighauser asking about the disposition of the prizes taken by the Ranger and Providence. I am answering that the usual formalities, although handled amicably, should be observed, and am forwarding this information to you and the admiralty officers at Brest.>
