From Edwin Stark
Asst Commys Office Norfolk 15th March 1817
I am sorry to inform you the two boxes of Wine have not as yet come to hand perhaps they have taken a rong direction as I cannot get any tidings of them in this place If you know the name of the Vessel they were shipt in, from Charleston, be so good as to acquaint me or if you think it necessary I will advertise them as missing
It will at all times afford me great pleasure to attend to your commands in this place
