Philadelphia Feby. 28th. 1809
I have the pleasure of sending you by the mail stage a collection of Flower seeds, some Early York & Sugarloaf Cabbage, Red Celery, Long French Turnep (Navet de Freneuse) so much and I think so justly admired, for its flavour, in France, together with 8 Quarts of Leadman’s Dwarf Peas; they are contained in a small box address’d to you, and will reach you at the same time of this letter.
|Price of the 8 Quarts Peas||$4||.—|
|Paid freight at the Stage Office||.50|
Our ground being yet covered with snow and bound by the frost, renders it impossible to get the Strawberry or Gooseberry plants up; but, as soon as possible, I shall send them, addressed to any place and person that you will please to point out to me. I herewith enclose you one of my catalogues, and shall be happy to supply you with any articles therein mentioned, and in my power to furnish at the time. I am Sir,
Very respectfully, Yours, &c.
