[English Translation]

Martinique the 27 February 1783

I sent, Sir, the brig the Judith in order to relieve the Darboude; and I will be obliged to you to profit from the return of that corvette in order to send me the original lists of situations of the troops which compose your garrison. I received the list of the movement of the first of this month.

I have the honor to be with a very inviolable attachment, Sir, your very humble and very obedient servant.
Bouillé

P.S. By the news which there is from St. Thomas, it would seem that M. de Vaudreuil was anchored at Porto Babello. The English army is still at Ste. Lucie.
