Richmond 13th. June 1808
I have lately received from Lynchburg 100 Bbls of your flour.—35 bbls of it I have sold to John F. Robertson of Manchester at 4.¼$ at 60 days.
I know but little of Mr. R., but he is to give Cornelius Buck of the same place as endorser.
This sale I made, without knowing the flour was inspected in Lynchburg.—for the balance I could not obtain the same price, without having it reinspected here, as that inspection is not in good repute.—I preferred selling at ⅙ less to John Lesslie on the same time.
I am Dear Sir Yr. Very humble servt.
