Newport the 9 June 1781.

Nothing new, Sir, except the arrival of the convoy in Boston which is great news. L'Alliance also arrived it did not carry one single letter

If Mr de Lomenie was absent for more than twenty-four hours, you would wish to open the package at his address, and to charge Mr Billy Dillon to post to New Windsor all which is addressed there.

You know, Sir, my sincere and inviolable attachment for you.

D. Lauzun.
