Petersbg Collrs office 18th Jany 1819
This morning I was informed by Mr Patrick Durkin of the house of Durkin, Henderson &co. owners of the Brig Planter, Daniel Anderson master from Marseilles that the Brig wd not come up to City point to unload. but wd at Norfolk. I wrote you dated 8th Jany 1819. by mail, that the Brig wd be up here in a few days, as they then told me. our Consul at Marseilles Mr Stephen Cathalan has not yet sent me Invoice of your wines, olive oil, anchovies, Macarone’s, & immortal Flowers—I have nothing but a bill of lading for your things.—There are also one Cask of thirty-two Gallons red wine & two boxes of red wine for Thomas Jefferson Randolph esqr no Invoice, only a bill of lading.—as the Brig does not intend up here, until repaired. I think you had better as soon as the Invoices come to hand, have the things for you & Mr Randolph entered at Norfolk. and I will endorse the Bills of Lading to any one you may direct me.
