Sans vous, mes correspondans de France me feroient croire que toutes les voies de communication entre nos deux pays sont entierement fermées. Depuis un tems infini, je n’ai reçu que par hazard quelques lettres. Vous jugez bien que je n’ai negligé aucune occasion d’exprimer la peine que me cause une pareille privation.

I have a letter from the former in which he begs me to add my importunities to you & Mr. Blair, for speedy succour if possible.

At Dogue run—some hands from the Ferry had...
