Morris-town April 27th 1780
I have the honor to inform your Excellency, that Mr DeMiralles had a more refreshing night, the last, than usual attended with other favourable symptoms but his pulse, at times, is irregular & fluttering.
Upon the whole, the Doctors think him better, though they dare not pronounce him past danger. If he should continue well through this day, & the succeeding night, I shall entertain the pleasing hope of his recovery. With much personal regard & attachmt I have the Honr to be Yr Excellys most Obedt Servt
