To James Madison from Anthony Charles Cazenove, 21 June 1815

From Anthony Charles Cazenove

Alexandria June 21st. 1815.

Sir

In answer to your very obliging favor of 19th. instt.1 I am buying Merino Wool at the following rates

Full blood 90 cents } For unwashed Wool, but good of each kind
15/16 80   ”  
70   ”  
¾ 62   ”  

& am not at present purchasing any inferior to 3/4 blood. Them are the prices which Mr. Dupont is giving in his own neighborhood, & am informed that imported washed merino wool (prize goods) has been sold in the northern markets from 82 @ 88¢.

I am not acquainted with the price that is now giving by other factories for the article but it is not unlikely that some of them may venture to give a little more than the above prices. I am in daily expectation of receiving the Madeira Wine you favor’d me with an order for, when it shall be sent up to you at Washington, unless otherwise directed. With highest regard very respectfully Your most Obedt. Servt.

Ant Chs. Cazenove

RC (DLC). Docketed by JM.
