Dear Sir

I have shipped agreeably to your direction 400 bushels of Coal, for which you will receive a bill of lading inclosed.

There are 1050 bushels in the same vessel for the President. As Mr. Nicolson informs me that 3 or 400 bushels of the last put in, is entirely in lumps, you had better both begin to receive at the same time, so that each may get a proportion of it. With the greatest respect I am Dear Sir Yr. Mt. Obt. servt.

Geo. Jefferson
