Does the United States Issue Diplomatic Letters of Credence in French?

A letter of credence is a document which is delivered from one head of state to another, appointing someone as ambassador to the receiving country. Traditionally, letters of credence are written in French. Does the United States follow that practice, or do we send them in English?

    From Wikipedia:

    '' Letters of credence are traditionally written in French, the lingua franca of diplomacy.[1]

    However, they may also be written in the official language of the sending state. '' ←

    From the last phrase ↑, I'm pretty sure the USA writes its letters of Credence in English ( easier since doesn't need a translator).
