I am with great respect Your Excellency’s most obedt Humble Ser vant AAE .
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of Your Excellency’s letter of the 4th which only reached me late on the 13th. Sincerely desirous of doing every thing in my power by which the interest of his christian Majesty inseparable from that of these States can in any manner be promoted, and still more in a point so essential as that which makes the subject of your letter, I should not...
With the highest Satisfaction, I do myself the Honor, to transmit to your Excellency, the inclosed Copy of a Letter, announcing the arrival of the Count DeGrasse with 28 Ships, in the Chesapeak. With the warmest Congratulations on this happy Event. I have the Honor to be Your Excellency’s Most Obedt Servt AAE .
I have the Honor to forward to your Excellency a Letter which I have this Moment received from the Marquis de Vandrieul. At the same Time I transmit to you a Copy of the late Information with which I have furnished the Marquis—altho I cannot vouch for the perfect authenticity of this Intelligence, yet the Channel thro’ which I obtain it, is a very good one. I have constantly kept the Marquis...
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...
I had, last Evening, the honor of receiving your Excellency’s favor of the 11th and immediately forwarded the Packets for the Marquis de Vaudreuil and Monsr de L’Etombe.

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...
My time has been so entirely engrossed in the preliminary arrangements of immediate necessity towards the intended co-operation, that I have not been able till now to do myself the honor to thank your Excellency for your letter of the 21st of May. We have too many proofs of the generous zeal of your Country men in the cause of America not to be convinced of it, and to feel all that the most...
I had the honor to receive your Excellency’s favor of the 14th by the Chevr du Plessis. It is not in my power to determine whether it was the intent of Congress to extend the allowance of half pay for life to those Gentn who hold Brevet Commissions in the American Army and at the sametime retain their Ranks and are actually employed in that of their own Country. Should it however be the sense...
I have the honor to inclose you a letter which upon the whole I have thought it adviseable to write to the Count De Guichen. As its contents are of a nature to make its falling into the enemy’s hands in its present form dangerous, and as I have no cypher of communication with the Count I take the liberty to request Your Excellency’s assistance in making use of yours and forwarding it by...
