ceiving an answer I fear my letter may have miscarried

upwards of six hundred bushells, about Two hundred and fifty
Bushells of which has been manufactured at Colo Fitzhugh's Mill
One hundred Bushells stored on the Bay, and the residue lies on
Patuxent River ready to be taken off, but the Colonel being without
a Miller declines collecting it for the present.
He informs me there are upwards of Thirty Barrells of Super-
fine flour now ready at the Mill & some Barrells of Seconds, and
recommends strongly to have it taken off as it lays very dangerous

I wish to be informed if I am to continue purchasing, I have wheat
offered me but no Cash to pay for it, If I am to Continue Hope I
shall be supplied either by an order on the Sheriff or otherwise.
Am in want of about a thousand pounds to comply with my present
contracts and as the Sheriff of our County has money in his hands
of both the 15 p cent & 10 p cent collections must beg I may be
furnished with an order on him for that sum by the first Conveyance
