Description
Congratulates him and Congress on being in Philadelphia again, and more particularly on the advantages gained over the enemy; hopes by the assistance of their good ally they may be able to expel the British from the Continent, and what they have lost in Delaware by Count d'Estaing's tedious passage may be gained in New York; is recovering his health; will not trouble him any longer with his letters to Europe as the King has a minister here.
