as fast as I can. the [pacquets?] came at
same time for Decmbr [December?] & Jany [January?]

[will?] [send?] as shant [shall not?]
order any more. I thank you for your [intended?]
[remittance?] I regret to hear of Miss Isaac's
indisposition & hope she is got better.
There seems to be a great Combustion
in France they are feeling what other
Countrys has experienced by their
interferance [interference?]. Its a great pity
of the Poor who are so distressd [distressed?] for
Bread. the Crops are good in this Country & I understand
promise well in Ireland, from the demand for
Grain I suppose the Tennants got good prices
for theirs. I intend sending home some things
this Winter that may house full [tons?] &
perhaps a dozen Grafted [Trees?] but
