Admiral Hood arrived to the east of New York with two 64 gun ship of the line escorting merchantmen containing a battalion of Scots to New York.

Please see below shot from Berthier showing the positions of some of the key units at the end of turn 15. I have added markers so you can identify the units. I believe if you click on the picture you will see a full screen.
There was a Spanish squadron at sea off the Chesapeake, it contained the 120 gun vessel, a 74 and a 36 gun frigate. This squadron was under the command of José Solano y Bote, and was in contact with De Grasse, although the time for messages to pass between the two admirals was lengthy.

Washington was visibly crushed, and almost surrendered the campaign..........
