In May last the General Assembly of this State directed a French Regiment to be raised for the service of the United States, but finding it impracticable to complete the same, in their late session in August disbanded such as were raised. Capt. Oniell (the Bearer) had the honor to be appointed an officer in that Regiment. He is about to undertake a journey to the grand American Camp, and in his way intends waiting on your Excellency. I take the liberty of giving him this letter, by way of introduction, which you will be pleased to excuse, so far as I have observed Capt. Oniell's conduct, it has been becoming the officer and the Gentleman.
