The two boxes of paste (as I conclude they are) shipped from Philadelphia so long ago as the 24th. of Decr last—were not received until yesterday. I am not acquainted with the cause of this long delay, not having yet seen the Captain. Mr. G. informs me that he inclosed you a check on the bank of Columbia, for $5872.84 on the 27th ultimo, which we have no doubt you have received. I am Dear Sir...
