Monto Aug. 16. 25.
your letter of Apr. 2 was recd June 6. and soon after it the wines which had been desired in mine of Dec. 9. 24. all in good order I now proceed to ask my usual annual supply of articles as below.
The cask of Table wine (as it was termed in your letter) gives me such particular satisfaction, that I much enlarge my demand for it this year. in your invoice it was entered thus ‘No 6. 1. Barrel do (i.e. Bergasse’s red wine of Marseilles) containing . Galls 40 ƒ’ I note it’s entry particularly in hopes you will recognize it and send me of the same quality. I hope my call is in time these supplies to arrive in all November.
You will have heard of the welcome reception Genl La Fayette has met with thro’ the whole US. I expect him at Monto this day to take his final leave. he will sail for France in a frigate in about 3. weeks.
I pray you to accept assurances of my great friendship & respect
