Description:

Dunmore to Harrington, quoting a report from a man he sent to Dunkirk:

A large number of troops have embarked at Boulogne. M. de Richelieu and [Charles O'Brien], Lord Clare have been in Calais, Dunkirk and Boulogne, having received a message that [Henry], the second son of the Chevalier St George had arrived and was lodged incognito in a convent. Orders have arrived for all corn merchants in the Channel ports to gather all they can and have it milled immediately.
