Bordeaux September 15, 1807.
Your favor of the 28 June requesting a supply of wine cordials &c. reached me but yesterday. I will use all my endeavours to have the articles shipped by the 10th Octr as after that time I think it would be too late. The Brandy I have ordered from Cognac of fifteen years of age. With great respect I am Sir Your obt servt.
