I had but just closed my Letter of the 10th which goes by this oppy, & contains my Invoices, when I receivd advice from Mr Hill of the Tobaccos which he either had, or intended to put on board the Rising Sun; but as it seemd to be a matter of doubt whether the Eastern Shore Crop either had, or would be got to the Ship, I do not know how to ascertain the Insurance of Mr Custis’s Tobo by the...

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...

It cannot reasonably be imagined that I felt any pleasing Sensations upon the receipt of your Letter of the 13th of February covering accts of Sales for 153 Hhds of Master Custis’s Tobo and 115 of mine. That the Sales are pitifully low, needs no words to demonstrate—and that they are worse than many of my Acquaintance upon this River—Potomack—have got in the Out Posts, & from Mr Russel and...

The Copy of your Letter of the 13th of February—by Talman—is come to hand, but for want of the account Inclosed in the Original I am at a loss to conceive how my ballance can possibly be so much as £1811.1.1 in your favour, or Master Custis’s so little as £1407.14.7 in his; however as the several accts will shew what Articles are charged and credited—without which there can be no judging—I...

I have some reasons to fear that by an unlucky mistake, my Letter of the 12th Ulto (among other things) ordering Insurance on Mr Custis’s Tobo & mine in the Rising Sun was put into the hands of Captn Peterson.
