From George Jefferson
Richmond 14th. June 1802
As I suppose you will have to give Mr. Hawkins some instruction respecting the Piano, I think it unnecessary myself to write to him, and therefore inclose the bill of loading to you, which you will of course forward.
I likewise inclose you a bill of loading for the box mentioned in my last.
I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt.
