By my Friend Mr Fairfax I take the oppertunity of acknowledging the Receipts of your several favours that have come to hand since mine of the 30th of November last, and observe in one of them of the 14 Feby by Crawford that you refer to another by the same Ship, but this has never yet appeard. Inclosd you are presented with the Memm for receiving the Interest of the Bank-Stock signd as...
Your Letter of the 31st May Via Bristol came to hand a few days ago; and I take the oppertunity by Captn Johnston of Inclosing you my Second Bill of Lading, which is all that Captn Talman gave; as my Steward informd me. You will find by that there was only 50 Hhds Tobacco Shipd pr the Cary, four by mistake being left out (as I wrote you in a Letter of the 28th of April last) which went...

This serves to cover a certificate of the Tobo I shipd you in the Cary, which I hope will answer the end of a Bill of Lading. I am told it will do instead of Recording the Bill, and as it is less expensive and soonest come at, I embrace the method. Since my last I have passd a set of Bills in favour of Mr George Brent (instead of Robt Brent) for Two hundred pounds Sterling which please to pay...
I forbore in my Letter of the 28th Ulto to mention what quantity of Tobo you might probably receive from myself and Ward from our Plantation’s on York River till I came down here, and now I am almost as much at a loss as I was then, to guess; so bad is the Tobacco, and so short are the Crops (where proper care is taken to cull it, and that I have strictly chargd all my Overseers to do, being...
I am apprehensive, that by some mistake or other, my Letter of the 24th Ulto and the Duplicate were put on Board the same Ship; I therefore send other Copies under this Cover. My Friend and Acquaintance Mr Bartholamew Dandridge having purchasd an Entaild Estate in Lands of one Charles Lewis procurd an Act of General Assembly for Docking the said Entail (other Lands of equal value being settled...

The Fleet is arrivd but some Ships are missing, among which number Captn Jno. Johnston happens to be one, and a report prevails that he is taken, but from whence it arises I really cant say. I believe it is conjecture only, but at the sametime I must observe it is a conjecture founded upon very probable Circumstances since the Fleet has been in 14 or 15 days and no accounts of him. Receiving...
This serves to address a copy of my last, and at the sametime to inform you that I have just receivd advice from my Steward of the Tobacco which he has put on Board the Argo; amounting in the whole to Seventy Hhds; Thirty of which belongs to me, and the rest to my Ward Jno. Parke Custis. You will please to make a proper Insurance thereon, and as you may readily perceive how much the usual...
