The trouble you have been so kind as to take in having me furnished with some of the scupernon wine makes it a duty to inform you that the 2d cask which went to sea, came safely half full, perfectly pure & unadulterated which I considered as a favor redeemg the necessity of encroaching on the quantity. the last supply came also full & pure & both were remarkably fine. after so many obliging attentions shall I be too unreasonable in requesting you to inform me what individual makes the crop of best quality, as that would enable me to establish arrangements with him for a constant supply as wanted.
The visitors of our Univty will meet on Thursday next, and I have no doubt they will join in the petn to Congress for the repeal of the duty on books & address a lre to our delegates & Senators there, who I hope will recieve the coopern of those of N.C.
