From George Divers

Farmington Apr 11th 1814

Dear Sir

You will be pleas’d to accept of a Bushel of the Mazzei pea which I send by your servant, which are all I have to spare. plant them about the middle of next month. I am sorry they are so much mix’d with the Cow pea, as you want them to put you in stock it will be well to have the latter pick’d from them—my Health has improv’d very much since the weather has become moderately warm,1 The first asparagus we had was 5 or 6 days ago, since that we have had several dishes and we have it in plenty for dinner today, I wish you were with us to partake of it, I will come to see you when I am able but wish you would make us a visit in the mean time—

Your friend
