From James Brown
Richmond 15th Septr 1792
I am favord with your letter of the 11th: Mr: Munro, by which Gentleman I now send you Fifty Dollars in Gold, you Might as well have made it 100 Dollars in case of Accidents.
I note what you write on the Subject of your Crop of Tobacco which is pleasing. My letters from London as late as the 23d: July give me great hopes you will get a good price for your Tobacco. Messrs: Donald & Burton have uniformly urged their friends to Std:1 ¼ or ⅓ d. of their Crops, which I beg leave to recommend to you. With Much Respect I am Dear Sir Your Obt. Hle. St
