I sincerely condole with you on our late Misfortune which sits the heavier on my mind as being produced by my own Country Men. Instead of considering what is past, however, we are to look forward and prepare for the future. I write Genl. Gates and Governor Nash as to Supplies and reinforcements.

Je vous felicite de tout mon coeur de la bonne nouvelle que nous venons de recevoir, de la prise des Flottes Angloises or. et occid. par la Flotte combinée Fr. et Espagnole. Prenons cela comme un Avantcoureur d’heureux augure, pour ce qui doit s’être passé de la part de Mrs. De Ternay, Rochambaut, Guichen et Solano. Je voudrois être en ce moment la de mon favori Virgile: pernicibus alis hoc...

Several days ago I received a letter from the Honorable Mr Brearly, Chief Justice of Jersey, in which he mentions that "Complaint has been made to me, by a Member of the Legislature of Somerset County, together with other respectable Inhabitants, that a detachment of Major Lee’s light Dragoons have quartered themselves upon the Inhabitants of the County near Rockey Hill, without any order of...
By a Vessel of my unkles bound to Bilboa I write you a few lines, and commit them to the care of our Friends Gardoqui to whom I have written for a few small Articles, and desired them to draw upon you for pay, but the demand will not amount to more than 20 dollors I think. Tho I have been so unfortunate as to have my Trunk left in France, and the Alliance arrive safe here without it, to the no...
By a Vessel from Boston, that passed by the Vineyard, I hear that the English fleet sailed off, Southwestward, on the 30th P.M. which account confirms my Last Letter saying that they had not appeared since that time. I had not spoken to Your Excellency about the works going on at Howland’s ferry, to assure our communication with the Continent, because the militia have been very slow at it, and...

He and Meade are propping the house (I mean the Marquis), and I sit down to indulge the pleasure I always feel in writing to you. The little song you sent me I have read over and over. It is very...
