I am favored with your very polite Letter of the 1st of Feby and am extremely happy to hear, that His Most Christian Majesty has been pleased to permit you to continue with your Administration on this Continent, with a gracious intention (should a Peace not be concluded this Winter) that an Event shall take place the next summer which will be equally pleasing & important to us.

In the mean time I shall be perfectly satisfied with any Arrangements respecting the place of your residence, which may be agreed on between the Duke de Lauzun & your self, and have only to add that I am with the highest sentiments of esteem & regard Sir &c.
