I had the Honor to receive your favors of the 5 and 6 instant, last evening with their Inclosures.
The wisdom of France is conspicuous in the treaty she has concluded with America. It shows her justice and magnanimity in not attempting to obtain exclusive advantages, and may prevent jealousys in other powers. In short sir, it bespeaks those who conduct her Councils to be possessed of very different sentiments and abilities from those of Britain.
The satisfaction I feel, as an individual on this occasion, I am unable to express. I have the Honor to congratulate you and the Honble Members of Congress on the glorious event of this treaty and am with the most perfect Esteem and regard Sir,
Endorsed Letter from Gov. Caswell 25 May, 1778, recd 22 June.
