From Patrick Gibson

Richmond 13th Novr 1818


Your favor of the 3d postmark’d Charlottesville the 7th was not received until the 9th which was so far unfortunate as I had the day before sold the 14 bars condemn’d flour to Sterling J: Crump at $6—the proceeds however shall be held subject to the order of T: E: Randolph & Colclaser—I shall attend to your instructions, relative to the distinction you wish observed in the several parcels of flour—

I have paid your dfts to Leitch $400 I: Garrett $12026/ and to A Robertson $303.4100—With sincere wishes for your restoration to health

I am with much respect Yours

Patrick Gibson
