Head Qrs Morris Town 26th of April 1780
I am just returned from a visit to Mr D’Miralles, and am happy to inform your Excellency, that if he has experienced any change since you left him, it is for the better.
His Fever & pulse, tho he had a very restless night the last, are now moderate & regular, and his hiccough has entirely left him. These are symptoms which the Doctor considers as rather favourable, but, I am unhappy they are not such as enable him to determine that the prospect of his recovery is either certain or flattering.
I pray you to make offer of my respects to Mr Marbois—& do me the justice to believe that, with much consideration, & great personal attachment I have the honor to be Yr Excellencys most Obedt & obligd Hble Servt
