Enclosed your Excellency will find the original Certificate which was given by Mr Chittendon to the bearer of your Letter of the 11th Ulto.
Nothing very interesting has happened since my last—a fleet sailed a few days after from New York for Europe, and I am informed the Enemy are under apprehensions lest the french Fleet which sailed two days after, should have fallen in with it.
