New York february 20th. 1806
I have been favored with your letter of the 9th instant, and now enclose bill of lading for the wine, as also a bill of the expenses paid on it—
Upon examination very little difference could be discerned in the colour, but by your description, I am pretty well satisfied the one you wished is forwarded. I hope it will not prove I have been mistaken—
I have requested the collector at Alexandria to forward it to you immediately on its arrival—
With sincere regard, I have the honor to be, Sir your obedient servant
