wrote you by her2 to which have now to add that, if you can Ship Blankets
& Ruggs as cheap as in Bristol, you may send us five Bales of each sort, &
for your goverment, you have annexed the prices they were shiped at in
Bristol last season.
Incase matters are not setled, send us Three Tons of Shott & three Tons
of Indian Bar lead in Casks. Incase its Peace, it wont do. As you dont send
us A particular Freight list, we dont know but there may be goods on board
