These Vessels are at Nantes where they wait for the Convoy, which We hope may be ordered there immediately, as a Letter We received yesterday from a large Number of Gentlemen at Nantes informs us that many Vessels with valuable Cargoes have been waiting a considerable time for the Convoy.4
We have the Honour to be with the greatest Respect Sir your Excellency’s most obedient and most humble Servants
M. Le Comte de Vergennes.
