J’ai communiqué à M. de Sartine, Messieurs, la lettre que vous m’avez fait l’honneur de m’écrire le 24. du mois dernier. Ce Ministre vient de me répondre, qu’il n’est point possible de vous promettre qu’il Sera donné des escortes particuliéres aux batiments destinés pour les Etats-unis jusques aux ports de l’amérique Septentrionale ni même jusques audelà du méridien des Açores; mais que vos...
I have communicated to M. Sartine, gentlemen, the letter that you did me the honor to write on the 24th of last month.

The Letter which Your Honors have been pleased under date of the 26th of last month, to address to several American Gentlemen, came duly to hand. Although I am not authorized to reply to it, nevertheless I should think, there would be a failure in the points of respect, and politeness, if the receipt of it, was not acknowledged. The reason why it is not done jointly, I believe proceeds from...

On my arival here Mr. Dobree told me he was informed By a line from you that I had Said that I was taken By a Privateer that belonged partly to his father —and Desired me to give him in Wrighting What the Captain Said.

Aujourd’hui, contre toute attente, et à notre grande surprise, il ne s’est rien passé du tout à l’Assemblée d’Hollande, si ce n’est qu’on y a lu le dernier Mémoire de Mr. l’Ambassadeur, mais on n’a rien mis en délibération. J’ai été aujourdhui 5 fois chez Mr. l’Ambassadeur, autant de fois chez notre ami (une fois au bout de la ville, où il dînoit). J’ai...
My last was of the 16–18 of this month. Contrary to our expectations and to our great surprise, nothing happened today at the Assembly of Holland.

Les Et. d’Hollande se rassemblent demain. Notre Ami arrive ce soir; et je vais lui souhaitter bon succès. L’on est de plus en plus embarrassé ici.
