Several of your favours now lye before me, but the last of Novr 9th I shall particularly take notice of —with astonishment then did I receive the Account of Sales of that Hhd Tobo pr the Everton where only £8.4.1¼ is renderd for it at the sametime that Mr Cary was selling the like Tobo at £17 & 18£ a Hhd. As to the exceptions which for two or three years past you have made to the quality of...
Your favours of the 28th of Novr by the Totness, and 22d of April by the Rogers, are come safe to hand; and for the loss of the last mentioned Ship I am heartily sorry, but hope the damage is mitigated by Insurance. The small Crop which I made last year put it out of my power to contribute to the load of the Totness; which, since the Misfortune to the Rogers has gone round to Rappahannock and...
Upon a Review of my Books, there appears to be a Balle due from you, to me, on my own private Acct. of £34.6.9½. Please to examine how this matter stands on your Books, and if found right remit the money to Robt Cary Esqr. & Co. Merchants in London whose discharge will be good against Sir Yr most Hble Servt ALB , DLC:GW . After his marriage in 1759 and until 1766, GW continued the Custis...
I wrote fully to you on the 12th June last and Addressd Copies to which be referd. Annexd is an Invoice of such Goods as are wanted for the Estate of Colo. Custis, which please to send as there directed; I beg of you to be careful in the Choice as we sometimes for want of it suffer vile Impositions from the dishonesty of the Tradesmen. I am Sir, Yr Most Obedt Hble Servt LB , in GW’s hand,...
Since my last of the 21st of July the five Hhds of Tobacco there mentioned got damaged in getting on board of Captn Pollard—to what amount I cannot take upon me to say—The Captn from some causes which he can best explain neglecting to have a re-view of the whole Tobacco that the loss might be properly ascertained, & satisfaction made before his departure from hence. That one Hhd was so much...
Doubtless before this you have heard of my Marriage with Mrs Martha Custis; but the Inclosd is the Ministers certificate of that Marriage and will serve to evince it. be pleasd therefore for the future to address all your Letters which relate to the Estate of the late Danl P. Custis Esqr. to me, as I am, besides my property therein invested by a Decree of Our Genl Court wt. the care of the...
In the Industry Captn Lowes I shipd you Eight Hhds of Tobacco which I flatter myself you will sell to the best advantage —When the Ship Sailed I was prevented writing to you by some means or other and no oppertunity hath since offered (from these parts) to advise you of it ’till now, however no bad consequences can possibly attend it as I did not purpose to Insure any thing on the Tobacco—The...
On the 12th of July last I drew upon you in favour of Mr John West Junr for One hundd pounds Sterlg—and on this day I have drawn upon you again payable at Sight to Harry Piper for the further Sum of Fifty three pounds Sterlg which I doubt not you will pay as it is the Balle of the Account between you and Mr John P. Custis or (as it stands I believe upon your Books) the Estate of Danl Parke...
In my Letter of the 11th of Septr last you were advised of 6 hhds Tobo on board the Johnson on Acct of Master Custis which I hope before this are safe arrived, and come to a better Market than the last. This Tobacco belongs to the young Gentleman himself, and must be carried to a new Acct raised in his own name and the Balle of £17.8.2 due from the late Collo. Custis’s Estate you will Debit me...

GW noted at the end of his copy of the letter, “Sent to New York. to go by the Packet.”
