I am still confined to the house by my painful complaint as I have been for more than 2. months. and altho’ we have Doctors in abundance, we have no medicine but Calomel , this obliges me to trouble you for another supply of Gum Arabic, and 3. or 4. oz. Hyoscegamus or Hewbary ( you sent some of this last lately to the Univty the whole of which I have used) these medecines by 1st mail, I must ask by the waggons a good Northern cheese, and pray you further to remit to E. Copeland jr of Boston D 64.57 cost of the wine for which you remitted. 34.07 duties to mr Thompson of N.Y.
