Abstract:
Approves Rochambeau's decision to ignore letters from Washington's intermediaries, and ascribes Lafayette's indiscretions to his inexperience and his desire to have the French army come into action. He also suggests that he consider the use of his troops against Charleston, S.C. if naval superiority is attained, and explains that the public did not understand the good reasons for the inaction of the army.
