By some kind of mismanagement Seven Hogsheads of Mr Custis’s Tobacco (from the Plantation on the Eastern Shore) missed a Passage in Captain Peterson; and Insurance made for that many more than the Ship carried of his, which you will please to have rectified, as I knew nothing of the disappointment till I came to this place a few days ago —I have drawn two Bills upon you of this date in favour...
On the 20th of November from Williamsburg I advisd you of two Bills I had just drawn on you, desiring they might be placed to the Account of Mr Custis; one of them for One hundred and fifty pounds; & the other of Two hundred and fifty; the last of which was sold and will be presented to you for payment —the other I have taken in, having now of this date, drawn another in its place of One...
I am now at this place with Mr Custis (my Ward) who I have brought to the College here; in fixing him properly at it, I find it proper to draw upon you, on his Acct, for one hundred pounds Sterlg in favour of the Reverend Doctr Cowper the President thereof, which Draft bears date with this Letter—please therefore to make payment & place it to Acct of this Young Gentleman. I shall, it is...
Inclosed you have an Invoice of such Goods as I want for my own use, which please to send by the first Ship to this River as many of the Articles will be wanted by the time they can arrive; among which the Second Mourning for Miss Custis, who we had the misfortune to loose on the 19th Ulto will be necessary—Your Acct against this young Lady may remain as stated in your Books till further...

I had but just closed my Letter of the 10th which goes by this oppy, & contains my Invoices, when I receivd advice from Mr Hill of the Tobaccos which he either had, or intended to put on board the Rising Sun; but as it seemd to be a matter of doubt whether the Eastern Shore Crop either had, or would be got to the Ship, I do not know how to ascertain the Insurance of Mr Custis’s Tobo by the...
Since writing my Invoice of the 10th Instt my Gardiner has furnish’d me with a compleat list of such Seeds as he will want, which please to send instead of the few then wrote for. I have also recollected some other Articles as underneath which I should be glad to have added to my Invoice & forwarded along with the other Goods, which will much oblige Your Most Obedt Servt ALB , DLC:GW .

I have some reasons to fear that by an unlucky mistake, my Letter of the 12th Ulto (among other things) ordering Insurance on Mr Custis’s Tobo & mine in the Rising Sun was put into the hands of Captn Peterson. If so, the Tobo, & order for Insurance on it will probably go by the same Ship; I therefore again desire (if this Letter gets to hand in time) that five hundred pounds may be Insured on...
I am almost ashamed to trouble you in the same year with such frequent orders for Goods; but as I am under a necessity of making some Repairs to, and alteration in my House, and did not get an Acct before, from the Undertaker of all the materials wanting, it must plead my excuse for requesting you to send me the under mentioned Articles—as also for the following Books for the use of Mr Custis,...
I am upon Terms for two Estates for & in behalf of my Ward Mr John Parke Custis. if I conclude the bargain for them (and I must be on or off in a few days) I shall have occasion to draw upon you for the whole money he has in your hands; Indeed I do not know as yet, but I shall be obliged to exceed it, as it is with the ready Cash I am to make the purchase, if I do it at all. As I thought it...
