From David Gelston

New York November 28th. 1809

Dear Sir,

I have this day received your letter of the 24th. Mr Forrest called on me yesterday—his vessel has not yet arrived—understanding the pipe of brandy was cased I wrote (on its arrival in Boston) to Genl Dearborn, requesting him to ascertain the duties, without opening the case, it is apparently in perfect order. Very truly your’s

David Gelston
