GENERAL HUMBERT'S LETTER TO THE FRENCH MARINE MINISTER

Lichfield, 2 Vendémiaire (September 25), 1798.

Citizens, Directors:

After having obtained the greatest success and made the arms of the French Republic to triumph during my stay in Ireland, I have at length been obliged to submit to a superior force of thirty thousand troops, commanded by Lord Cornwallis.

I am a prisoner of war upon my parole.

(Signed) Humbert.
