Descripción

2 pp, folio. Bifolium. A frail survival, on brittle, aged paper: a horizontal closed tear across the head and other damage has been obtrusively repaired with archival tape. Begins by informing them that he has 'Ship'd on board the Sloop Beaver Cap: Thos: Metcalf master bound from hence to Bermuda Sundry Merchandize as pr: Invoice & Bill Lading Inclos'd Amounting to Three hundred & Sixty Eight pounds & 5d: Lawfull money which comes to your Address to dispose of to the best Advantage upon my Account in the Island of Bermuda Commission the same you were to have for Laying out the first Adventure [.]'. He wishes them to 'Close the Sales of this Invoice as soon as Possible' as he would rather 'sell to a small Profit for Prompt pay & finish the Affair soon, then [sic] to have any Accounts Opend to make a long Affair of the mattter'. Signed postscript of the same date informing them that 'Mr: Jno: Phillips' (the elder?) tells him the he has agreed with them 'to Share the Profits of what is consign'd by this Vessell Equally in Consideration of his Extra Trouble, going back & forth & Collecting the Things', and informing them that he is leaving it to them 'to settle with him'.
