By the Hanbury Captn Eston, I have shipd you eight Hhds of Mastr Custis’s Tobo, and hopes you will sell it to a good advantage as the prices are high in the Country, and in my opinion great appearances of a short Crop of Tobacco in this and the neighbouring Colony —These eight Hhds when sold, are to be placed to the Credit of the young Gentlemans Acct. As I only grow Tobacco to Supply my...

Your favour of the 1st of October I did not receive till yesterday, where it has lain ever since is not easy to imagine—I have examined the Acct Currt therein Inclos’d and believe it to be right saving that it wants credit for the Tobo lost in the Deliverance—your next possibly will acct for that, as well as the other Tobo taken in the Joseph. I have met with very bad luck in all the Tobo I...
