An apology, I think, wou’d be Unnessary for addressing you; and I shall make no other than the regard I have for you.

ALS : American Philosophical Society <[January 5, 1779,] in French: Last September I called on you with M. Stadelle, merchant of Strasbourg, and explained my loss of 4–5,000 l.t. when my ship on the Newfoundland Banks had to take on seven English prisoners from a Massachusetts privateer.

The owner of the privateer owes me 4–5,000 l.t. ,...

Your Excellencys letter of the fourteenth instant has been read in Council. The “mistake” respecting the arms which you mention, has probably been made by Lieutenant Colonel Bayard in supposing the bayonets to have been continental property when they really belong to this state; and as to Colonel Bayards having procured them to be made we can only say that we are not informed of any thing of...
