Early in May last, I had the pleasure of addressing a letter to you, My dear Marquis, in which I dwelt pretty copiously on the state of affairs in this country at that time. Since then nothing very remarkable has occurred. The two great questions of funding the debt & fixing the seat of the government have been agitated, as was natural, with a good deal of warmth as well as ability. These were...
Herewith I have the honor to send your Excelly a letter for the Chevr De la Meth, in which is another for the Mareschall Duke de Broglie.

As that Letter arrived after the departure of the Post which set off Yesterday for the Eastward, and waiting for the next Post will give it almost a Weeks delay, I shall send it forward immediately by the Chain of Expresses which has been...
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 did myself the honor to inform your Excellency that the French Fleet put to sea on the evening of the 8th. By advices from New London, the British in Gardener’s Bay did the same yesterday morning. They took their sick on board and departed with their whole force— They gave out that they were destined for Chesapeak. From appearances a meeting of the two Fleets seems unavoidable— Their force...
I have had the Honor to receive your Excellencys Favor of the 22d instant per Captain L’Enfant. I beg your Excellency to be assured that I feel myself happy in an Opportunity at any Time to gratify your Desires; more particularly so on the present Occasion, which I view as diffusive of the most sensible Joy to the allied Nations of France & America.

I had yesterday the honor of receiving your Excellency’s favor of the 7th accompanied by the Copy of one which you had written to the Chevalier des Touche.

Since my last I have had the honor to receive the detail of His most Christian Majestys Fleet in the West Indies, which your Excellency has had the goodness to send me.
