Mr. Benjamin Harrison has offered me Six shares at the same price of those purchased from Mr. Heron. If you wish them bought, please advise me.
I am requested by Mr. Heron to inform that the Fish You write to Mr. Pleasants for are in his care, ready to be sent by the first Boat going to Milton. I am Sir Yr most Obd servt
