It gives us a real concern that we are not favourd wth any part of thy Crops ⅌ the Hanbury this Summer—we assure thee that all possible Care should be taken by us to make the most of it & we flatter ourselvs that we can & do render as good Accots Sales as any Mercht at this Port for Tobacco of the same quality sold at the same time —as we have not had a line from thee shall not now add farther...
We wrote thee ⅌ the Fauquier wth thy Accot Currt: it will bring pleasure to us to hear it gets to hand, and proves r⟨ig⟩ht. We have got a Copy of the Condemnation of the Joseph from France, and the loss is now adjusting wth the Underwriters. We hope ⅌ the first opportunity to be favour’d wth some Consignments from thee, and if it be fine Tobacco it will give us a double pleasure as we doubt...
We did ourselves the pleasure of writg Thee the 25th October last ⅌ the Hanbury Capn Esten, since which we have not received any of Thy favors, which we are sorry for, being always glad to hear of Thy welfare. The principal occasion of this is to advise that we have sent Captain Necks in a new Ship call’d the Lunn & Lloyd for the accomodation of our friends, whom we earnestly solicit will give...
We wrote thee ⅌ Captn Esten who we hope by this time is safe arrived in Virginia and likely to meet a quick dispatch —Thy bill on Accot of J.P. Custis for £100 is accepted. We have sold only one of the Estates 8 Hhds Tobacco ⅌ the Hanbury vizt at 3d.—hope ere long to be enabled to make up and forward the Sales of that Ships Cargo, and intend soon to send our friends Accots Cur[ren]t—We wish to...
We have the pleasure to advise the safe arrival of Capt. Esten thy 12 Hds Tobacco by him shall be taken all possible care of. We are not yet ennabled to compleat the Sales of the 12 Hds ⅌ the America owing the meanness of the quality and Badness of the scent of some of it & indeed that 12 Hds were in general so bad that the Buyers would not believe that it was the right Crops of thy marks—It...
Inclos’d we have sent thy Accot Current to 1st Augt last—please to Examine the same, and not to omit advising us if it proves right, if otherwise please to point out the Error and it shall be rectify’d. With concern we remark that it is sometime since we were favour’d with any Tobacco from Thee but we hope by Hylton or Esten for a renewal of thy Consignment and in the Sale thereof great Care...
We wrote thee ⅌ Capt. Necks wth Accot Curt this now Covers the Sale of thy 12 Hds Tobacco ⅌ Lewis & 12 ⅌ Esten. we are sorry it clears no more the former was owing to the heavy Charges it came home under & the ⟨latter mutilated ⟩ the Tobacco being much out of condition so that the Buyers for home Consumption would not meddle wth but one Hd. We assure thee that no Care or attention is wanting...
Since we wrote ⅌ the Industry thy favr of Aug: 10 is come to hand. Thy Account has Credit for thy proportion of the Average of the Goods in the Supply £5.13.0 & is the whole that will ever come out of that troublesome & useless Affair. We are yet without a Bill of Lading for 20 Hhds Tobo lost in the Deliverance. the not forwarding it or an attestd Coppy of it ⟨ illegible ⟩ for the underwriters...
It is now near 12 Months since the date of thy last favr to us whh we remark wth concern. The loss ⟨ mutilated ⟩ the deliver⟨ance⟩ remains in the same state as when we wrote ⅌ the Fleet ⟨th⟩e want of our good Friend the Speaker’s Bill of Ladeing to prove to the Insurers that his Tobacco was on board that Ship. It is also unlucky that the want of Bills of Ladeing for some Tobacco and Indigo...
We are favour’d with Thine of June 12th, informing Us of Thy Marriage with our friend Martha Custis, upon which circumstance we heartily congratulate You both, & wish You a great d⟨ea⟩l of happyness. We observe Thy directions in regard to our addressing our Letters in relation to Coll Custis’s Estate, which we shall do accordingly. We are sorry the Sales of the 28 Hhds Tobacco ⅌ the King of...
