Yours of the 20th of June came duly to hand. The inclosed for our friend Lee was immediately forwarded to him. I was happy in the occasion of hearing from you.

The prospect is that in a week the...

I wrote to enquire as to the condition and price of the work, and received for an answer of which the inclosed is a Copy.

Being much distressed for Cartridge boxes, and cartridge paper for muskets (most particularly the latter article) we find it necessary to purchase up immediately as much of both as we can.

This must be...
