The Military Stores which arrived at Portsmouth from France in the Dutchess of Grammond I have ordered to this place on their...
This afternoon fifteen or sixteen British Ships of war have made their appearance off this Harbour to the Eastward of Block island—more than half of them I think are Ships of the Line—from appearances at Sunsetting they intended to come to under Block Island.

I have...
I am just honored with yours of the 26th instant. Shall prepare to set out for the Army as soon as possible. The conduct of Major General Arnold is astonishing. I think it a kind interposition of Heaven that his traiterous designs were so seasonably discovered. A Frigate arrived here the last night from France by the way of the West Indies. I apprehend Genl Rochambeau will give your Excellency...
