Recipient: Vergennes, Charles Gravier, Comte de
[dateline] Paris June 16th. 1780
I have just recieved a Letter from Nantes brought in a Ship from New London.
I inclose your Excellency a Newspaper1
inclosed in it, and an Extract of the Letter, which is from a Gentleman who is a
member of the Assembly and one of the Judges at Boston.2
This is all the News I have. I hope your Excellency has more by the same Vessel.
[salute] I have the Honour to be, with the greatest Respect, your Excellency's most obedient
and most humble Servant.
