Dear Sr.,

I am to acknowledge your favor of the 21st. We have reason to believe
Graves has returnd to N York; his fleet much damag’d, the Terrible sunk
at Sea, but neither Congress or the Minister of France have receivd any
acct from Chessapeake since the return of the fleet. We have been under
great anxiety, particularly abt Barras. Do not conclude, my Dr. Sr.,
that you cannot Send me anything new from Virga. Mr Buchanan is in
town – the tea & Shoes will be sent by him. Cottinger is looking out
for the Stuff for yr great coat, he has not yet been able to find the
green Baze. Present my Comp. to yr Lady.

I am Dr. Sr., Yr. assur’d & affecte Hble Serv,

Danl Carroll

Mr. Fitzsimmons asks me if I have got an answer about the Cloaths.
