Passy, Augt. 28. 1780.


I received yesterday your favour of the 23d.4 proposing a Ship to be freighted for our Goods. I some time since put that Business into the Hands of M. Williams, who has agreed for a Ship accordingly, that is large enough to take all we have to send.5 He will inform you of the Particulars. I am nevertheless thankful to you for your Obliging Attention to this important Business; and am, with great Esteem, Sir, your &c.

M. Ross
