Dear Sir

The above articles were forwarded several days ago by Brice Harlow’s Boat, & hope they will reach you safely, there is not a Bll: of nice clipd shad in the place, they have been quite scarce and very deer all the spring—as, I could not get them really good, thot it best to send none—The Nail Rods were the best assorted I Could find in the place, they are also scarce—

I recd to=day a small Box seeds, from New York for you, which shall go by the first good opportunity—there are however no Waggons at present—Nothing yet recd from Petersburg or from F. A. Mayo for you—

Yours Very Truly

B. Peyton
