Richmond 25th. Janr. 1806
Your favor of the 19th. came duly to hand. None of your Tobacco has yet come down. That of a common quality sells at about 31/6.—Yours I suppose would command about 36/.
Mr. Lyle informs me that Tobacco will not suit him, that he is much in want of the thousand dollars, and shall expect us to sell as much as will raise it, immediately on its arrival.
I am Dear Sir Your Very humble Servt.
