From Archibald Stuart
Staunton 13th Octr 1811
On my return home I found that three bushels and eight quts1 of Timothy seed of the price of 10$ had been forwarded to Mr Leitch in Mr Harnests waggon— By the same conveyance was sent a smal Ferkin of butter made at my dairy which I beg you will accept as a present—I directed it to be made & packed in this month in expectation that the weather would have proved more favorable than it has been for its conveyance
