After so long Silence it may be expected I shoud introduce this Letter with an Apology for my seeming neglect, it is necessary to urge something in my defence I own Sir, that I may satisfy you it proceeds from a very different cause than the want of Inclination, and what can be so proper as the Truth. I have been posted then for twenty Months past upon our cold and Barren Frontiers, to perform...
Inclosd you will receive a Bill (promisd in my last of the 7th May) which please to receive and place to my Credit —Since mine of the above date your agreable favour of the 26th March covering Invoice of Sundries pr the desire is come to hand as has the Goods also in good Order which is more than most of the Importers by that Ship can boast great part of her Cargoe being damagd—thrô the...
Be pleasd over and above what I wrote for in a Letter of the 15th April and 10th Instt to send me one dozn strong Chairs of about fifteen Shillings price the bottoms to be exactly made by the Inclosd Dimension’s and of three different colours to suit the paper of three of the bed chambers (also wrote for in my last)—I must acquaint you Sir with the Reason of this request. I have one dozn...
On board the Unity Captn Cuzzens I put four hhds Tobacco to your Consignment, intending to have advised you of it by our early Ships but an Embargo being ordered, and the Unity ready, she cleared and slipped out (as I am told) before I got notice of it; by which means you will probably receive the Tobacco before this advice, which cannot however be attended with any disadvantages, as I did not...
Your Letter of the 9th of Septr Inclosing a Copy of your former of the 5th July preceeding came to my hands about the first of March last: I am glad to find that the several Bills remitted you were accepted; I had no cause to doubt their goodness, but we notwithstanding are often deceivd —I now Inclose you one for £40.9s. —as I find Mr Knox has sold my Tobo for about one third part of its...
Since my last of the 8 Jany I have receivd your favour of the 9th of Septr preceeding together with an Invoice and Acct Currt but the carelessness of the Captn prevented their coming to my hands till near Six Weeks after his arrival: and the Goods got home but a few days ago. I suppose I shoud not have receivd them at all, had I not been at great pains and expence myself to Send them up. So...
Captn Whiting is arrivd & my Letters by him are come to hand, but not the Goods: the latter I apprehend is in bad order as I understand the Captn enterd a protest immediately upon his arrival—The Locks and Hinges I fear are slight if I am to judge their Sizes & price—The Sword pr Captn Nicholson I have receivd. The Inclosd is a Bill of Excha. for £100 Sterlg 60 of wch the Cash is receivd must...
I have been under concern for sometime past at your long Silence; and have been put to many Shifts, and some Expence for want of my Goods: I have wrote you several times and addressd Copies, to which be referd. I have now to inform you that finding no Ships for London and despairing of oppertunities of consigning to yourself; I have put on board the Nugent Only, Captn Copythorne for Bristol,...
In July—62 I received the Copy of your Letter of the 27th of April preceeding —By Captn Braisse it came, & superscribed with a Box, but no Box appeared, nor did I much wonder at it, it being the Copy of a Letter only, and the Captns disavowing the receipt of any such Package—some considerable time after this I was favoured with the original Letter, but by what Ship it was brought, I am to this...
Since my last of the 14th July I have in appearance been very near my last gasp—The Indisposition then spoken of Increasd upon me and I fell into a very low and dangerous State—I once thought the grim King woud certainly master my utmost efforts and that I must sink in spite of a noble struggle but thank God I have now got the better of the disorder and shall soon be restord I hope to perfect...
