LETTER FROM MURRAY, SIMPSON & CO.

Philadelphia, 4th December, 1776.

DEAR SIR: Mr˙ Lindsey informs me that he had left the goods in your care, with orders to dispose of some part of them; but as times now seem exceedingly precarious, we would not wish to have any Continental on hand, therefore desire that you will not dispose of any of the goods until you hear further from us. If you have sold any of them, please to lay out the money in wheat or flour or staves, but by no means keep any on our account.

In haste, your real friends,

MURRAY, SIMPSON & CO.
