I have not received the last parcel spoken of in your last, but that is not at all astonishing, the packages are sometimes two months before reaching their destination, particularly in winter. Enclosed, I send an autographic letter of the Marshal de Rochambeau Item not included. That has not however prevented me from profiting by the shooting, in spite of the always growing decrease of game, in our country places.
I was however still able to make several quite good bags. We have quite a number of hares, partridges, rabbits, quail, thrush, coon crake etc.And if you should come to France, when the game laws are up I would be very happy to offer you the first day of the season. Good bye my dear General, will you recall Madame de Rochambeau to the kind recollection of Mrs. Hancock & present to her my most respectful regards, believing me always your very affectionate & devoted.
The British officer sent by Lord Cornwallis to the surrender ceremony attempted to surrender to Rochambeau, who insisted that the officer's sword must be yielded to Washington. In 1881, great celebrations were held in Yorktown to commemorate the British surrender there. General Winfield Hancock, the capable Union Corps commander and by then Commanding General of the US Army, presided over the ceremony.Hancock had been the Democratic nominee for President in 1880. An obvious second purpose of the elaborate celebrations were to rekindle national patriotism only 16 years after the end of the Civil War. The ceremonies were attended by the descendents of many Europeans who had aided the American cause, including the families of LaFayette and von Steuben. Rochambeau and Hancock had each hosted dinners aboard vessels of their respective navies during the event. At his large estate near Paris, the Marquis kept a large collection of memorabilia from the campaigns of his grandfather and father (an aide to the Count Rochambeau in America).
