Washington, 10th Oct., 1789.

Sir:

In obedience to your Instructions of the 31st of July last, I have proceeded to the re-Inspection of the Publick Tobacco by me purchased of which, Three Hundred and twenty-four Hogsheads were judged to be of the first and second Class, which Qualities Mr. Carthy agreed to take in part of his contract with you and the Honourable Council.

Inclosed you have a Manifest signed by the Inspectors, it is stored & ready to be delivered. Forty-five Hogsheads were adjudged to be inferior to the Second Class, them I have Coopered and restored without weighing a List of which I will inclose to you by some other opportunity.

I am, &c.,
ETHELRED PHILIPS.
