Dear Sir

Since writing, and Closing the within Letter, a Gentleman of our Neighbourhood Wrote me, that he left Fredericksburg yesterday, when two Expresses came in with accounts of a General peace having taken place in Europe—should this be true, it no doubt will have a considerable Effect on the prices of the different articles of produce here1—as I am not able to form a rational Conjecture to what extent, and in what Manner this may be—I wd. thank you for yr Opinion on the Subject, should you have Leisure to give it—accept my sincere Wishes for every Blessing that can attend you & yours and believe me yr ever affe Friend
