Dear Sir

I recd some time since a small Box by Mr. J. C. Randolph’s Boat Man Sye from you, addressed to R. Walsh jr. Esqr Philadelphia, which I forwarded immediately, without waiting to hear from you, taking it for granted you wished me to do so.

I now advise you of my having this day forwarded to Milton one Sieve of Rice from Col N. Alstow of Charleston, & a Small Box from Philadelphia, by Jus Craddocks Boat, which have only been to hand a day or two—if they are delivered in good order pay freight as customary—

With great respect Dr Sir, Your Mo: Obd: Servt:

Bernard Peyton
