Monticello Apr. 25. 07.
In the inclosed letter of yesterday I omitted one article. the three barrels of potatoes on board the wreck were intended for planting. they will possibly be spoiled, or come too late for that object. I am told potatoes from the North are always to be had in Richmond. will you then be so good as to send up a flour barrel full by the first boats? I salute you affectionately.
