Head Quarters Morris Town 10th April 1780
I do myself the honor of inclosing a New York paper of the 8th which gives a more particular account of Admiral Rodney’s success than any we have yet seen. I cannot but hope that the enemy have dressed it in the most unfavorable Colours for us. I have the honor to be with very great Respect Your Excellency’s Most obt Servt
P.S. Since my last I have recd confirmation from New York that another division of transports is watering, and that a further embarkation is talked of.
