George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Clement Biddle, 14 April 1788

To Clement Biddle

Mount Vernon April 14th 1788

Dear Sir,

Your favor of the 3d inst. and the news-papers accompanying it came to hand by the last mail.

In my letter to you of the 11th inst. I requested you to procure a wheat fan for me, but since that time I have found one more than I then knew of[,] which compleated the number of my several farms and supersedes the necessity of your sending the one which I wrote for, provided this letter reaches you in time to prevent your procuring it.

I will thank you to inform me of the price of good Shad and Herring per Barrel and if a quantity of them would meet with a ready sale in Philadelphia. With great esteem and regard I am dear Sir, Yr Most Obedt Hble Sert

Go. Washington
