Errors Excepted pr Robert Cary & Co.

ALB, DLC:GW.

1GW ordered these goods on 23 and 28 June 1766 and acknowledged receipt on 4 April 1767. GW also received Cary’s invoice of this date for goods for John Parke Custis and Martha Parke Custis.

2Humphreys & Co., warehousemen, were at 5 Lothbery in 1767. See the identification of Humphreys & Harris in Cary’s invoice, 13 Feb. 1765, n.7.

3John Brazier’s gunmaking business was in the Minories in London.

4Crozier & Waugh at 1 Turnwheel Lane, Cannon Street, were merchants and dry salters.

5GW evidently copied this incorrectly from Cary’s invoice. He had ordered four shuttles on 23 June.

6James Brotherton, a bookseller in Cornhill in 1765, was joined by John Sewell in 1770, and together they published books and pamphlets.

7Aqua bryoniae, made from a root, was used in the treatment of female complaints and of convulsions in children.

9GW used a dash here and in three of the next five entries.
