Dr. Sir

The Bearer informs me that a Provision Vessel was on her passage to Your post. That she had been taken by the Rebels & retaken again by some of the Guard Ships in the Sound, if that is the Case I hope you have recd. the Provisions in this however I shall inform Mr. TOWNSEND of it, & let him see your letter also so that he Judge what to do.

Should be much oblig’d to you to endeavour to get your Returns down to this place as soon after Issuing as possible. I am frequently oblig’d to send in a Weekly return without your Vouchers. Please to request Mr. EVANS at Loyds Neck to do the same.

CLAYTON is stationed at Hamstead so that you & him I suppose will be able to Visit. I purpose going up sunday a Week to see take a ride & let us have the pleasure of asking you how you do- I am Dr. Sir


The damn’d French Fleet has disconcerted every thing I did expect to have cheated Winter by getting to the Southward but I now apprehend I shall have to continue here.
