Dear Sir

Mr. Storm, for mr Kuhn our Consul at Genoa, has sent me 50. bottles of a wine of Italy called Nebioule, which was forwarded to his correspondent at Leghorn, mr Ulrich; who consigned it to mr Girard at Philadelphia, where I learn that it is arrived, by a letter from mr Girard. I inclose you the letters of Storm & Ulrich for information & to enable you to impose the proper duties, which letters I will pray you to return with information of the amount of the duties which shall be immediately remitted. the wine I would wish forwarded to this place, & ask that favor of yourself or mr Girard, whichever may have it in possession, & in the mean time that it be kept in a cool cellar. Accept my friendly salutations & assurances of great esteem & respect
