Chevalier de La Luzerne to John Adams: A Translation

The Chevalier de la Luzerne and M. Marbois are very moved by the remembrance from Mr. Adams1 and learned with a great deal of pleasure that his indisposition has had no serious consequences.
Dr. Cooper will not preach today: M. le Chevalier de la Luzerne hopes to have another opportunity to hear him.
M. de Marbois has made arrangements with M. Cushing to attend another sermon today.
We hope to have the honor of seeing Mr. Adams today either at his home or on board the frigate where we shall dine.
RC (DSI: Hull Coll.); addressed: “A Monsieur Monsieur John [Adams]”; docketed by John Thaxter: “Card Chevr. d. la Luzerne”; in an unidentified hand: “1779”; by CFA: “August 7th.”
