I have understood you have on hand some Marsalla wine consigned to you from Sicily, & to be disposed of. if that be the case I will ask the favor of you to send me two quarter casks of it, in separate casks, to be shipped & addressed to Messrs. Gibson & Jefferson, merchts. at Richmond; and to inform me at the same time of the cost, which I will remit to you. Accept my salutations & assurances of respect
