From William Wardlaw

Richmond 5th Augt 1815

Dear Sir

I recd your favr of the 30th ut. The Lemon-acid was sent to Mr Norris’ room1 and left with several articles which Mr Edmond Anderson was about to pack up to go in the same stage with Mr Norris, they were not left & I presume they are in the care of Mr Anderson if you have not recd them. I have sent a note to the Sergents office informing him of your wish with respect to the notices in his hands & I have no doubt but that he will return them by this or the next mail

I am with much respect.

W Wardlaw
