Document Information
Date April 9, 1792
Author Name John Smith (primary) Location: Columbia
Recipient Name Samuel Hodgdon (primary)
Summary Smith informs Hodgdon that he has procured 8 bushels of lime and would have sent more but it is so bad in quality that he would rather have sent none. Miten [?] would not trouble himself to go and would not send a hand to the hill and said he must have $15 a bushel for it. Smith would have lost a guinea rather than take it had it not been to oblige Hodgdon and had he not given his word to Mr. Whetstone who comes with his iron at $9 per pound if Hodgdon takes all of it which Smith expects he will.
