In looking over the prices of Tobo. at the time of shipping find that Richmond was about 30/— per 100 ℔s. but as we are in hopes yours will neat more, Two Hundred Dollars shal be sent you, or your order for it shall be paid at sight. Annex’d is weights of the Tobacco & we remain very respectfully Sir Your Mo. Ob. Servts.
