Philada. 9. Decr. 1807.
I have the honor to forward to y E. a letter from your estimable friend Mr. Mazzei, whom I left at Pisa on the 19th. Septr. recovering fast from his late dangerous illness.
He desired me to take particular care of a Box containing 12 Bottles of Wine, which I should be glad to know if you wish to have forwarded to you by the Coasters going to Washington, or delivered to the Collector of the Customs here who has offered to take charge of it.
I hope in a few weeks to deliver to you in person a small phial of Strawberry Seeds from the abovenamed respectable friend, with the personal respects of
Sir Your most obedient humble Servant
Frede. H: Wollaston
