Barras writes a letter to Destouches authorizing him to take "Le Neptune, L'Eveille and Le Romulus" to cover the arrival of a convoy from Boston that was escorting two frigates to Newport: "For this purpose he will cross between Rhode Island and Martha's Vineyard, being sure as much as possible to preserve the facility of entering Rhode Island if the enemy were to present themselves in superior force".
