Richmond 14th. Mar: 1806
Your favor of the 10th inclosing 150$ is received.—I some time since procured & forwarded a hhd of Molasses to Monticello by direction of Mr. F—. Your usual supply of hams I likewise had some time since engaged, from Mr. Macon, having taken it for granted that you would require them. they shall be pack’d as you direct.
None of your Tobacco has yet arrived.—no change has taken place in our market since my last. I am beginning to apprehend that you will be disappointed in obtaing the price you expect; as it is now pretty well ascertained, that the crop, contrary to the general expectation, will turn out to be a very large one. from the general scarcity in Europe however, markets there may mend, which will consequently benefit ours.
I am Dear Sir Yr. Very humble servt.
