24 November 1756
Your Esteemed favour of the 13th August to our WC came to hand the
12th Instant. We have taken freight for the Quantity of Flaxseed you order
in the Ship Waddell, Charles Stewart Master, Who we expect will be Clear
to Sail for your port about the 24th December. She is a good Ship and the
Captain well acquainted on the Coast of Ireland. The freight is to be as
Customary from this to your Place but What it will break at it is uncertain.
Flaxseed is raised much above the value by the imprudence of Some
people here. This you may be asured of that your's will be on as Easy terms
& as good as any from the place, yet we Don't think it will Stand you Less
than 28/6 Sterling per Hogshead. Shall have a particular regard to your
orders for Insurance.
