Description
It being beyond doubt that the four ships which arrived the previous day are Continental, he supposes that one of them will carry Mr. Laurens to Europe; asks if he may introduce to him the Count d'Erveilly, who was with the Count de Noailles at the affair at Savannah, under Count d'Estaing; having missed his passage he is anxious to return to his Corps, and to see his family in Paris; he is deserving of respect and pity in his present situation, and it is hoped that Mr. Laurens will take him in his ship.
