      “My Dear Sir,

           … I now hand you invoice … for thirty five Hhds tobacco ship to you per Cincinnati; in making the invoice I have given the inspection marks & numbers as well as the shipping marks, in order that you may know each Hhd even in case the shipping marks get rubbed off – ( the other is cut on the staves) – I wish the whole insured at sixty dollars per Hhd or ten% over the cost.

           I shall value on you in favor of Mr. Dudly or Mess Dudly & Nelson, tomorrow for fifteen hundred dollars at sixty days sight, which please honor. – The Cincinnati will probably clear today.

The steamers news from Liverpool up to 4th ulto were received on Sunday the 1st inst I think the accounts will not have much influence on our market – there is no change as yet. Lead is arriving in large quantities and must, I think soon drop down to 3 ¼ would it not be a safe article to ship at that price?”
