Ever attentive to your commands I have been enquireing for the Oeiras Wine , but cannot find any here to be depended on as genuine, there being several times more sold under that name than is made on the Estate . Presumeing Sir that none but the first quality would suit you, I supposd it would be more agreeable to wait a few weeks longer untill I could get the best from the Country, than to...
I have the honor to acquaint you that I have shipped on board the Adelaide for Baltimore, John Mun Master, two half pipes Oeiras Wine of the Vintage of 1798, which I address’d to Genl Smith. The House from which I obtained it, is the only one in this City that had any; but I am apprehensive Sir that it will not prove altogether agreeable to your taste, it appearing to me a little too sweet to...
I have had the honor to receive your letter of the 10th May, & immediately set about executing the Commission you favoured me with; but found it more difficult to get pure Termo Wine than I was aware of: for although this name is indiscriminately given to all the White Wines made in the vicinity of this City, yet amongst all the foreign Houses, who are the principal Wine Merchants, I could not...
I had the honor to address you the 27th. Septr. by the Bark Elisabeth, Captn Larson via New York. The two pipes wine therein mentioned goes by the ship Edward, Captn Craig & are cased. Agreeable to your instructions I have address’d them to the Collector of Philada or N York, the vessel being bound to the former port, but if the delaware is frozen, will put into & unload in the latter. Had the...
I was duly honored with your favours of the 19th. & 20 July, inclosing the first & second of a bill of Exchange drawn by James Madison Esquire on James Maury Esqr. of Liverpool for three hundred dollars, which I endorsed payable at four shillings & six pence each, to prevent Mr Madison losing by the Exchange, dollars being worth 4/9 in England. Although, Sir, I was much disappointed at the...
I had the pleasure to address you by the Sloop Unity, Captn. Deakins, for Alexandria, acknowledging the receipt of your highly esteemed favours of the 19th & 20th July, covering the first & second of a sett of Exchange drawn by James Madison Esquire, for the payment of the two pipes & two hogsheads of Wine; the first of which sett of Exchange Mr Maury has accepted. In the same Vessel I took...
By the Ship Cato, Captn James Snow for New York, I have shipped a Pipe of Arruda Wine for you, to the address of David Gelston Esquire, agreeable to what I had the honor to inform you the 14th Inst by the Richmond, Catn Hathaway for Philadelphia. It is double cased & marked TJ. I have taken much pains to have it of the best; and if I can trust to the taste of some persons who have tried it &...
By the Ship Cato, Captn. Snow, I had the honor to address you acquainting you with my having shipped a pipe of Arruda Wine double cased in that vessel, accompanied with two sample bottles. I esteemed it a very pleasant wine & I have no doubt that it will prove agreeable. The Ship sailed about 8 days ago for New York. With the most perfect Respect I have the honor to be Sir yr. mo. devoted...
I had the honor to address you the 6 Octr. and the 14th. & 25 Novr. past, the latter accompanied by a pipe of Arruda Wine (the name of an estate within the terms of Lisbon) which I shall be happy to learn was to your satisfaction. As the amount was small I have omitted drawing for it in hopes to be favoured with your command for another when Sir I will include both in a Bill— I should oftener...
Chance threw into my hands a present to you, from Monsr. Chretien, an ancient Physician of Montpellier, of a treatise on the method of applying external remedies in different disorders, & afforded me the pleasure to address you under date of the 15th Ultimo. I forwarded it by the Ship Frances Captn Nicholls for Boston, with a letter from the Author & that I took the liberty to write, in it. A...
