[dateline] Newport 6th. 8[bre]. 1780
I had the honor of forwarding to you two months ago, some Letters of your husband, deliver'd to me at Paris; and two small pack's that I suppose to be silk handkerchiefs, or some goods of the same kind. I do not know if you have Receiv'd them. I beg you would inform me of it, that I could inquire after, if they are not in your hands.
There is I believe a french fregate, going soon for France; if you will send me, your and Mrs. Dana Letters, I shall take care of them. I have the honor to be with great Respect your most obedient servant,
Regt. of Saintonge
