Washington Feb. 15. 09.
I must trouble you again on the subject of paint & oil by asking the favor of you, to send for me to Messrs. Gibson & Jefferson at Richmond, 60 galls. linseed oil, & 100. ℔ of dry white lead, by the first vessel going to Richmond, after your river shall be open, & to note to me the amount which shall be duly remitted. I tender you my best wishes & respect.
