James Madison to William Allen, 23 June 1832

23. June 1832

Dr. sir.

The waggon will deliver you two Hhds of Tobacco which you will make the best of in the Fredg. market. The best hogsheads were sent to Richmond in consequence of the delay in hearing from your dealers & the inconvenience of waiting longer.

If salt, in good sacks, can be had, and there be no prospect of fall in the price before the demand for the pork season please to send twelve sacks by the return of the waggon. Should there be a prospect of a fall in the price the waggon may bring one sack and a ton of plaister, with the articles stated below.
