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 have the honor to inclose you a Bill of Lading for two pipes of arruda Wine of the last Vintage, shipped by the Brig Neptune Captn Calvin Delano for New York. It is a very fine Wine & I think will prove satisfactory with a year or two’s age. I have sent two samples & shall request the Collector of New York, $D: Gelston Esquire to send the samples on to Washington. Should they please you...
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 honored with yours of the 16 April; and was much gratified that one of the last pipes of Wine was of a quality which met your approbation. A compliance with your wishes will always give me much Satisfaction, but it will be no small addition to my pleasure; to think that it has in the smallest degree been in my power to be instrumental to your comfort. Agreeable Sir to your wishes I have...
The foregoing is a Copy of the letter I had the satisfaction to write by Captn Delano. Before this will come to hand I hope that the Wines will have reached New York & that Sir they will prove to your satisfaction. They are here esteemed as good as the Termo of Lisbon affords; but these things depend much on Taste. Should they prove to yours, I shall be much gratified; if not, have the...
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 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 Satisfaction to address you the 20th. Ultimo by the Ship Susan, Captn Loring for Norfolk, since which I have refrained shipping the Wine as a Gentleman informed me he had a number of pipes of pure Arruda, of the last Vintage, coming out of the Country, some of which I might have; and which I supposed would be much more agreeable than the mixed Wines. In a few days the parcel will be...
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...
