being arrived at Newport, I find myself very happy; not because my health is rather improved than impaired by a long and fatiguing journey, nor because I have seen the vast and interesting theatre of the most memorable transactions, but because I had the opportunity to Know the first personage who shines upon it, and to add the feelings of my heart to those suitle which he had inspired my soul...
Accept my congratulation on yr safe arrival at New Port in good health, after traversing so much of the American theatre of War—and my thanks for your obliging favor of the 12th making mention thereof, & introductory of the Count de Charlus, whose agreeable Countenance, alone, is a sufficient index to the amiable qualities of his Mind, & does not fail, at first view—to make favourable...
I arrived, my dear Chevalr, at these my Quarters in the fore noon of yesterday; after passing over very bad roads & riding thro very foul weather without any damage—I must again give vent to that sensibility wch your goodness has impressed me with—and again thank you for all those civilities which your politeness heaped up on me at Rhode Island—I shall be greateful for them—& shall wish for...
I was confined in my bed and very sick when I received the favor of your letter. that letter came on purpose, and proved as an encouragement to get the better of my desease. I did not judge proper to depart with a life so much honoured and endeared to me by your friendship. the respect and attachment that I profess for your excellency are such that they may indeed claim a distinction but, dear...
I take the liberty to recommend to your excellency the colonel Menonville, one of the adjudants general, a gentleman of great learning and capacity, and my peculiar friend for a long time past your excellency is already acquainted with the subject of his errand, by a letter of Count de Rochambeau. I was always convinced that nothing good can be done in this country, but under the direction and...
Permit me, on this first occasion of writing to you, to begin my letter with congratulations on your recovered health, & I offer them sincerely. Colo. Menonville put into my hands two days since, your favor of the 29th Ulto—If my inclination was seconded by the means, I should not fail to treat this Gentleman as the friend of my friend—and if it is not in my power to comply with his wishes on...
your excellen c y is persuaded I hope, that I cannot forget any word that was dropt from your mouth. I know very well how you labour under the scarcity of provisions, and it was on that account that I was the first to propose that colonel Menonville might be directed your excellency, previous to any aplication to congress. I was sensible that every aplication of that kind should rather your...
the dificuties arising from the present circumstance, and from several other causes having employed my thought upon the road I imagined and proposed this plan that I submit to your excellency. The french army with its field artillery should march to the passage and chuse a position between north river and the delaware, there to remain till a fleet under Mr degrasse, officially announced, is...
I am very sorry to see that the resolve of our board of war did not appear to your eyes under a favourable light; but I cannot forbear complaining to your excellency with all the feelings of attachment and duty, that you could entertain the least suspicion upon the meaning of a step to which I gave my vote. the Mention made of unanimity could have recalled to your memory, that there was in...
I fear, from the purport of the letter you did me the honor to write from N. Port on the 9th, that my sentiments respecting the Council of War held on board the Duke de Burgoyne the 31st of May have been misconceiv’d—and I shall be very unhappy if they receive an interpretation different from the true intent & meaning of them. If this is the case, it can only be attributed to my not...
