The harpsichord strings came safe, but the letter of Oct. 5. did not somewhere till the 19th I see a Franklin Almanac [. . .] at the Franklin office, opposite the Market, will you be so good as to send me 2. copies by mail? I expect you have recieved a small package of books for me from Giugem; Baltimore. be so good as to forward them by a waggon to James Leitch. mr Baker informed me he should recieve soon a cask of Scuppernon wine for me, which I desired him to deliver to you, & I pray you to send by the boats of Johnson, Gilmore any other boatman whom you know to be trusty. God bless you.
