Description
Hopes to see him before the arrival of this and a previous letter, but cannot say by what conveyance he will make the journey; Count d'Estaing's efforts though not entirely successful had been of some service, and his capture of the Experiment and the Ariel had lessened the number of infesters of the coast; the loss of men in the late unhappy repulse renders re-inforcements necessary, but it would be better to send none than an inadequate number, or to have them come by land; the principal objection of the Marine Committee to embark the troops will be obviated by the position of d'Estaing's fleet; hopes his father will see the necessity of transports, and that they will be sent at once.
