January 11. 1779
Wonderful news indeed arrived in the person of Mr. Sorrey yesterday. He came with a letter from the committee in London telling us there is a cartel already in Plymouth waiting to begin our exchange. We shall be carried to Nantes in France on the Milford cartel and exchanged for an equal number of English prisoners held there. Mr. Sorrey came again today to inform us that the cartel must only wait for a man to come from France to take charge of us. We are also on full allowance again.
