Permit me to introduce to you (the Bearer) Capt. Oniell, who was in May last appointed a Captain in a French Regiment, directed by the General Assembly to be raised in this State, for the service of the United States, but finding it impracticable, they in their late session in August disbanded such of the men as were raised.
So far as I have observed Capt. Oniell's conduct, it has been consistent with the character of the officer and the Gentleman. Excuse the Freedom & believe me to be with the utmost respect and esteem, Sir,
