Had not been able to find him the day before when he called with an officer from M. Durumain: is charged with a message from Durumain, begging him to embark at once; the ship has been delayed by contrary tides, but being short of provisions he must set sail for France; he may not be able to cross the bar at Charleston to take him, and he would be sorry to lose the chance of taking him to Europe; begs him not to let the present opportunity escape.
