Gentm. Suffolk Nov. 13. 1770

We have sent you the goods agreeeable to your orders, and have only to say we wish you were now here in order to pick out a more compleate assortment from our London Cargoe which is first open'd

The Exchange at Court was 20 PC, and expected to be higher on the Open Court on accot. of the Factors having orders not to advance so largely in the Cask Tobo. purchase, not one man that we hear from this way was able to sell a hhd Tobo. at Court, tho it was offer'd at 2. Currency [illegible], We are Respectfully Gentm. Yr Wilsons Gibson Granburg & Co

Johnston & Bennehan Esteemed Friends

I have this day rec'd your favour of the 12th Inst: by Leb; Veasy, Tyre Harriss's Waggon also came in with them which I have loaded back with Salt & have sent you by Boyds Waggon the goods & articles at foot. Veazey has engaged some other Work as he came down, & says it will be a week before he setts of. I shall get your Tobo look'd at as soon as I can observe your directions therein, Exchd. at last Court was 20 pcs. I am very sorry to hear of the Disturbances in your County & am affraid it will be a long time before they are settled, & I doubt the Consequences will be ruinous to many

If you can depend upon your advices from the Wes: Manch I would advise you to send all your Tobo. there & turn your Trade wholly into that Channel, for I think you may dipend that Tobo. will not be more here this season than 20/. if more than 18/. there is no price yet fully fixed -

I am very respectfully Your assured Friend Edwd Stabler
