It was not until Capt: Hardwine deliver’d the Claret your Excellency was so obliging as to spare me, that I had the least knowledge of its being sent. In consequence of your kind offer to furnish me with three hogsheads, I wrote to Colo. Tilghman (at Baltimore) requesting him to receive & forward it to me; & obtained for answer, that before Your Excellys order had reached your Agent at that...
I have been honored with your Excellys favor of the 18th from Annapolis covering a letter from the Marqs de la Fayette, for the trouble of doing which be pleased to accept my thanks. I regret exceedingly that the weather and roads shou’d have deprived me of the honor of seeing you at my retreat—I shall look however, with pleasure for your return to Annapolis, when I shall expect the fulfilment...
I have just received a Letter from General McIntosh in Georgia praying me to use my intrest with your Excellency in favor of a young frenchman under the name of Du Coins whose situation is explained in the Letter I now do myself the honor to enclose.

I had the honor to recieve your Excellys Letter of the 7th Octr which was handed to me by the Count Wengerski—I was in hopes this Gentleman would have passed two or three days with us but his hurry to visit the North Ward induced him to leave us immediately.

At the sametime that I again thank your Excellency for offering me part of the Claret which you have at Baltimore, let me once more pray that my acceptance of it may put you to no inconvenience. I should be unhappy if I thought this would be the case. If, on the other hand, you can conveniently spare it, and Colo. Tilghman should be in Baltimore, I could wish to have it put into his care; as...
We are making some preparations in the Army for a display of our Joy on the happy event of a general peace—The Exhibition will be delayed until the arrival of the definitive Treaty; If your Excellency can make it convenient to honor us with your Company on the occasion it will be a great addition to our happiness. I take the liberty to put under cover to your Excellency several Letters which I...
I have been honored with your Excellencys Letter of the 10th instant. Congress having, by several Arrangements, given me reason to believe, that their sense of the prelimininary Articles is such, that there is no doubt but they will terminate in a definitive Treaty; I cannot suppose that these will be a Necessity of the further Continuance of the French Troops in the United States. Nor can I...
