This document is from a collection of financial papers related to the plantation operations of several generations of the Rouzee Family in Essex County, Virginia. The papers date from the 1790s through 1860.
This handwritten one page, double-sided document is a business letter written to a Mrs. Wintonne. It appears to pertain to the procurement of whips, a bonnet and other personal affects from Baltimore. It appears that the writer was the agent in charge of obtaining these items. In the letter the writer explains that certain things were unable to be purchased, chiefly the bonnet. The letter is signed by the writer, but is illegible. On the back of the letter is a list of names with numbers after them denoting yards of cloth to be purchased for clothing each person.
