By the return of the Brig I was favored with your letter of the 1st of May, with several Cases of wine, & a box of sundries which came to hand in good order, & I presume are of good quality; as the wine which you sent to others, is, I am informed, much esteemed—my own I have not tasted.

By return of my Brig to Alexandria I have taken the liberty of sending you a few Cases of wine &c. as ⅌ the invoice inclosed, to the address of Colo. Fitzgerald.
