James Madison Papers

James Madison to Bernard Peyton, 14 May 1830

May 14. 1830

Dear Sir

You will receive, from my waggons, now preparing to set out 4 more Hhds of Tobo. I inclose a note annexing to the number of each Hhd [?] particular character. We calculate that there will be at least a dozen more, which will be forwarded as fast as possible. But as these with some exceptions, will be of inferior quality, I leave it to your better judgt. to decide, whether the prospects in the market, for the superior Tobo recommend an early or delayed sale, for the Hhds on hand.

Please to send by the returning waggons six sacs of salt, having regard to the quality of the Sacs-also half a hundr weight of Hoop Iron for Tubs &.c.

The articles sent by the last trip of the waggons were safely brought

Draft (DLC).
