[dateline] 11 May 1778
A respected family has requested me to please ask you if Mr. de Roche Fremoy1
is still employed in the army of General Washington. I dare hope, sir, that you will
do me the honor of giving me any information you must have concerning this officer,
who has not been heard of for quite some time now. I have the honor to be, with the
utmost respect, your very humble and very obedient servant
If you honor me with a reply, please address it to Causse Rouge Street, in Bordeaux.
