The free shipping of Goods to the United States subsequent to the revocation of the orders in council suggested to me that some chease might not be unacceptable & I have, without order, sent you two by the Argo for Alexandria, which I hope you will recieve in good condition: to insure which they are in Lead as before. I inclose the bill of parcels.1

All your Tobaccoe per Adeline is on hand. I wait for the chance of a more favorable opportunity of selling than has yet presented. With great respect & esteem I have the honor to be your obliged friend & Servant
