Executors of David Cay Philadelphia

Sirs

I have received last post your favor of ye [the] 2nd March with a State of the particulars of the charge agt me in Messrs Andrew Clow & Companys Books- I am satisfied that my Son got at least some of the goods sent by my order & have written him for the particulars- One article however at present strikes me as extraordinary 5-8 [pounds] for fruit trees- Three dozen were ordered- Supposing all Sent, the price in London is 6d & can hardly exceed it with you- So that I confess it appears very high to me- I would be glad to know (& if you cannot inform me how many were sent) my Son will inform me

The other articles perplex me still more- I find in my letter of 21 Nov- to which the one you send me Copy of, is to be an answer, tho' I cannot find it ever came to hand- I had desired a 10 gallon Cask of Mallaga wine & I can find no vestige of any being sent, but you charge me a pipe of port, raisins & almonds & it appears to me that I never had anything of the Kind that was not pd for at the time- I beg to know by what vessel this wine & fruit was sent as there is certainly some mistake in this business- Also by whose order!

Messrs Clow were directed by my letter 20 Nov 1791 to draw immediately or upon sending a note of the amount of any shipment by my order I would remit on rect-

Upon examination I find I had some raisins & almonds from Phila a little before that period from a Grocer which were pd on the spot-

I am in return Gentm

The Executors of Mr. David Cay Philadephia

Gentm

Last post brought me your fare of 25th Inst- In answer to which, I cannot trace a vestige of any goods being sent to Kentucke, but by a late letter from my Son who writes me that Major Crogham had brought out & heped some trees from Phila & begs to know if I pd them, that he may recover the amount from the Major- this makes me suppose that something has been sent out, & it is necessary I know from you, whether the number & quality agrees with my order & 2 dly that I have an acct of the particulars in so far as they fall under my order, that they may be pd by Major Crogham- This figured by one of yourselves will answer my purpose- I have written to my Son to know what he recd & if it comes to your charge, it shall be instantly pd- whatever good opinion we may both entertain of Messrs Clow & Company probity- I beg to observe that it is not sufficient to charge us with goods we never ordered- for less that never were received. The loss & inconvenience of incorrect proceeding must fall on those who commit such, & not upon others-

You sent me Copy of a letter of mine 18 March 1792 which to my surprise I find not in my letter book- I have however no doubt but it is genuine- and my Clerk informs me there is a pipe of red wine in my cellar which he supposes the one charged- But upon a hypothetical proposal which depended on quality & price for a [hogshead] of wine, to send me a pipe without fixing either, is a proceeding that I shall say nothing of- But to tell you at the very time this appears to have been [hogshead] without notice I bot and pd for a cask of that wine here for my own use- as I neither know whence nor for what purpose it was sent, it has Layen neglected and I suspect has suffered in Quality- as however Messrs Clow may have been misled by my letter, I shall pay for a [hogshead] If you think proper, or leave the whole at your disposal- and surely had the order been direct for a [hogshead] it would never oblige me to take a pipe-

Wt regard to the fruit I cannot find a vestige of any received I have even cause lookover the little bills for freight & voyage & find non pd- and besideds as they were for family use I find there has been a regular succession of buying so that if shipped, I am confident they miscarried. In this situation I was surprised to be called on by Messr Gamble & Co for 300 ys which I certainly will not pay had even every thing been as it ought- when by your own production of my letter 18 March 1792 they are desired to draw or let me know the amount & I would remit in Bank notes, just is out of the question. I am in regard
