Sir,

Sugar and coffee that is bought here (as well as other merchandize) comes high to the purchaser. I shall find a great convenience in, and should be much obliged if a small quantity of the above mentioned articles could be sent me by the return of Colo. Henley's Waggon. I would pay the amount thereof, with freight, immediately on their arrival at this place, to Colo. Henley. If you Sir, would have me served with them, I shall esteem it, a favour done to Your obedient & humble Servant Edward Wright
