I recd a few days since by Mr Johnsons Boat 64 Blls: your Flour, which was then dull sale at $3 ¼—owing however to the prospect of a freeze, the article became more in request, & I was unable to effect a sale at $3.37 ½, as per a/c sales above, which was the very best I could do with it, & which hope will be satisfactory to you. Nett proceeds as above, say $184.42, at your credit.
I am favor’d this morning with yours covering a letter to Mr T. Saunders, which shall be delivered as soon as possible—
Your draft favor A. Robinson Esqr of Lynchburg for thirty $30 Dollars has been presented & paid.
