[dateline] Bordeaux 23 June 1778
[salute] Honble. Sirs
We are without any object Interesting other than the Eclat with which Le Marquis D'Almadova1
is receiv'd by the Governor Intendant and other Cheif officers of this City. He appears
much a Man of the World.
He will leave this to Morrow for Paris where he proposes to stay Six Days. His Retinue
which is Numerous creates delay by what I learn of them who have had opportunity to
introduce themselves into his Family. They do not expect their residence in London
will be of long durrée. I hear nothing further of the Boston. No vessels arrived on
this Coast since my last. Nine American Seamen arrived here yesterday from St. Sebastians
part of a Crew, taken by a Jersey privateer, from Edenton landed on the Biscay Coast.
I am with great Respect Your honors Most Obedient Servant
