Salem Columbiana County Ohio 10 mo 14th 1815
Dear friend, I used the liberty of sending thee by
Joseph Jones 5 1/2 bushel grass seed more than
the 11 bu. thou agreed with me for
near a year ago having understood by Benn
Hanna that it was like thou wouldst wish
more - If it should be more than thou wanted
perhaps some of thy neighbours will want-
I have two barrels of sugar and several hundred
lb of cheese which I am willing thou shouldst
have- The sugar at 18 3/4 pr lb and cheese 12 pr.
the cheese is of our own make and is I think
good - Thou wilt be pleased to write me
an answer as I will wait a while before I
sell to another.
I remain thy friend John Street
