Baltimore, 18th. June 1806.
By request of Mr. Reibelt, my Partner (Capn. Brantz) sent me from Leghorn a parcel of that species of Maiz called “Quarantina”. When Mr. Reibelt left this City for Natchitochés, he directed me to send some it to You, Sir; which I have done by this morning’s Mail-Stage. The Corn is contained in a small linen Bag, with a direction on a Card.
I have the honor to be, with the highest respect, Sir, Your most obedient & most humble Servant
