your favour of the 7 th of October came duly to hand, and I would have answered it sooner to let you know that I would send you the cuttings desired, but I wished, with the answer to send you a bottle of wine made a few days before, the receipt of your letter. After it was done fermenting I racked it off and I thought it rather tart, and having read in the memoirs of the Philad a Agriculture...

I went last week to see the Baltimore cattle show, with a view to get the members of the Agricultural Society of Maryland to recommend the cultivation of the vine, and the making of wine. I had previously sent four kinds of wine to the President of the society, and which was drank at the Societies dinner, and generally spoke favourably of— Particularly the kind made from a grape called the...
I sent you some days since a bottle of domestic wine that I call Tokay—I now send you a bottle of what I call Burgundy. neither of these wines have had any brandy in them,—I will after I have bottled it send you a bottle of my Champaign, made of the miller Burgundy grape, which will have to be kept perhaps two months before you drink it, when, I expect it will be brisk and sparkle—I have but...
