Yorktown, Novr. 8th, 1781.


I was charged with Dispatchs for you from Philadelphia, but being attached to the French Fleet, I have been necessarily obliged to stay in York for to Terminate Some business for the Naval Army, therefore Sir, I took the opportunity of a Gentleman going to Halifax for to forward these dispatches. I am extremely Sorry, Sir, I cannot have the honour to carry them to you my Self, but I hope, as soon as my business is settled, to go to Newbern where I will make myself the honour to wait upon you. Till then, Please to accept the assurance of the most perfect respect with which I have the honour to be,

Your most obedient & very humble Servt.,
