§ From Anthony Charles Cazenove
31 March 1812, Alexandria. “I expect in very few days to be able to send you the pipe of Lisbon wine you have been good enough to order. I have now on hand 1 pipe, 2 hhds & 1 qr. cask good market Madeira wine, which am authorised to sell @ $250. p pipe in order to close sales, such as have always sold for $300. Will you give me leave to send you a pipe, being actually a sacrifice? The quarter cask is not equal to the pipe or hhds.”
