Doctor Hall a friend of mine, one of the Representatives of North Carolina, brought with him to this place, a few bottles of Scuppernong wine, the best American, that I have tasted: I asked for two to send you, which he willingly gave & regretted, that application had not been sooner made, that more might have been sent; Our friend Governor Barbour has kindly offerred to contrive them to you. Accept them as a small mark of the great esteem entertained for you by

Your friend
