I have received eleven Hhds of your Tob o , which the person who sent it informs me is all there is. It is inspected, and is said by those who saw your crop last year, to be greatly inferior to it.

I received last night your favor of the 3d. and have in reply to inform you that the present price of Petersburg Tobacco is 4$:, to which it has risen within this week or two from 22/.
