The Crop of Wheat some weeks ago was unusually...

I recieved the letter you honored me with of the 21st November, inclosing one for Mr Eccleston, which I forwarded. This Town, so long famed for its immence commerce with the U.S.A., in all probability, is shortly to experience a sad reverse. Last year no less than 489 American ships cleared out at this port with cargoes to an amount far beyond precedent. We have no information later dated than...

I inclose in this this invoice, bill of parcels & bill of lading of your cheese, which I hope will prove as I wish. I recollect your father used sometimes to order his cheese to be inclosed in lead & as this mode of packing them secures better than any other against the effects of heat on the passage & the package is almost always worth its first cost, I have taken the liberty to put them up...

Captain Woodhouse takes charge of a small parcel, recieved with a letter which is inclosed. I well remember what you said some years past of the awful times.

The crops of wheet in this country are promising:—in...
I had great pleasure in the execution of the commission you honored me with. Mr Roscoe, besides being an author, is also (what you would hardly suppose) a banker, and happens to be mine. If you do not already know it, I take great pleasure in telling you he is, in all the relations of life, one of the most amicable of men. I am glad to find the alarm for the crops of grain had ceased. How...
