Richmond 12th. Octr. 1804.
I inclose you Capt. Wingets receipt for 1100 bushels of Coal, being so near the quantity you want, that we thought it best not to wait for a Vessel that would carry exactly what you require.
Heth & N. inform me it is taken away from the yard as fast as they can get it down—which causes that now sent to be not so large as usual; as they have but very little out of which to choose.
I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt.
