Instructions for M. le Baron de Viomenil
M. le Baron de Viomenil will command the body of French troops which embark on board the squadron of M. le Marquis de Vaudreuil; he will conduct them to the place where M. le Marquis de Vaudreuil will judge it suitable to debark it according to the orders that he received or that he will receive from the Court and the rendezvous that he can have with the Spanish.
M. le Baron de Viomenil will deliver the body of troops to the orders and the arrangements either of Mr. de Galvez, Spanish Lieutenant General, or of the Governor Generals of our Colonies; if his health does not permit him to stay there, he will leave it under the command of M. le Comte de Viomenil, his brother.
