The Assembly in their late Session at Fayetteville impowered the Delegates of this State in Congress to sell & dispose of the public Tobacco, who desire to be informed at what particular place & the time when it can be delivered, & quantity and quality at each place. They further say that they should be enabled to say that it has been lately re-inspected at the ports of delivery and reweighed, in which case it would undoubtedly insure a better price.
Now, Sir, as the Tobacco is still under your direction, & will be so I presume untill delivered, I beg you will make me a return as speedily as possible agreeable to the requisition of the delegates. Every expence on this measure must be charged to the public.
My best respects attend you, Mrs. Rowan & family. I shall be happy in hearing from you on all occasions & particularly that you are getting better of your complaints.
