G. Washingtons Compliments to Mr Hunter—would thank him for forwarding the enclosed letter by a good oppertunity when any such offers.1
He would thank Mr Hunter for the Currt Cash prices of good Plank in Alexandria—Inch—Inch & Quarter—and Inch and half. this by the bearer.
If there is any Vessel in the harbor with these, & do not meet a ready Sale, he would take some, if good, of each, if the Master would call in his way down.
