Sir:

It would be proper that you should down the Tobacco which you have purchased for the State to Ryans or Stuarts or some other safe & convenient warehouse near the mouth of the River to be stored till it can be sold, as soon as conveniently may be and advise me of it when done.

I am, &c.,
SAM. JOHNSTON.
