By searching in another stage office, which I did not know of at that time, I have found them and have now recieved the whole. I thought it my duty to mention this in order to save you the trouble of further enquiry, and take at the same time occasion to inclose you 12. dolls. for the 3. dozen of wine. This bill will be paid by the Collector of the customs at Baltimore. I am Sir with great esteem your most obedt. humble servt
