Rougemont, —

Agent of the King of Prussia.

Sent Franklin news of a purchase to be made from London of uniforms and wool blankets, destined for the American army, and taken from a captured French ship.

Possibly Geollot Rougemont, an ex-Jesuit who had written Frederick II, or Dr. Joseph Claudius Rougemont (1736-1818), who was born in St. Domingue, trained in Dijon and Paris, and was assigned to a military hospital in Brest in 1784.
