Nicholas Cruger to Thomas Thomas
St. Croix, May 25, 1772. “… you can send me the Ballance [of your account] at your leisure. Rye flour will sell for ps. 7. a barrel here readily but the Duty is 25 Ct. However we enter it as Corn Meal and give the waiter a fee, which hint you must give the Capt if you send any down, and tell him to see me before he enters.…”
