<br /> Lee Letter: n209

Washington and Lee University

Sender: George Washington
Recipient: General Henry Lee

Dear Sir:

Your favor of the 28th. of Feby came duly to hand. On the subject
of which I shall say nothing until I have the pleasure of seeing you in
May, as promised.

The intention of this letter is to enquire, as you have frequently offered
it, whether you have, at this time, any Corn for Sale.

I want more than my Nephew of Westmoreland can furnish me with, and will
allow for what you can spare the same price I am to give him; that is,
the Alexandria Cash price, at the time of
delivery (sharing the freight equally), or, I will allow fifteen
shillings per barrel; the now, as I am informed, marked price, and what
Mr. Tayloe informs me he has just received for a vessel load he had
sent to Baltimore.

Pray write me by first post, whether I may expect
any from you, or not; how much, and when;

Yours etc.
