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. If so, the Tobo, & order for Insurance on it will probably go by the same Ship; I therefore again desire (if this Letter gets to hand in time) that five hundred pounds may be Insured on...

Since I came to this place I have been informed of your Letter to Mr Josh Valentine (who is now Dead) respecting the Tobo shipped you by Captn Peterson—I cannot conceive how this mistake has happened, nor is it in my power at this time to remedy it otherwise than by sending the marks and numbers as under from the different Inspection’s not having the Bills of Lading to Inclose—This method I...

Since my last of the 21st Ulto the Goods by Captn Wylie are come to hand, among which the Wheat Riddles are so entirely useless that I shall be under a necessity of sending them back, or keeping them by me as useless lumber—This coud not possibly have happened had my directions of the 6th of November last been attended to for there I expressly desired Sand Sieves for the purpose of Sifting out...

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...
In behalf of Master John Parke Custis I have this day drawn an order upon you in favour of William Dandridge (who is now in the Fleet Prison) for One hundred pounds Sterling which I hope will be immediately paid as I have already taken Bond from his Friends here for the amount of that Sum in Currt Money, at the prevailing Exchange with Interest, and shall carry the same to the Credit of Master...

In looking over my order (of the 20th of June last) for Goods, I perceive that I have omitted sending for Dutch Blanketting for the use of my Estate on Potomack—an Article I much want, and must beg the favour of you to send me by the first Ship bound to this River.

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.

Having wrote several times to you of late I have the less to say in this Letter, the principal design of which is to inclose Invoices of such Goods as are wanted for this River —those for York I must take some other oppertunity of forwarding as Mr Valentine has not yet sent me a list of those Articles we may want for the Plantation under his care. The Reason why I proposd (in my Letter of the...
