Sir

We have executed the order your gardener sent us, in our best manner, and have no doubt everything will ultimately prove satisfactory. Owing to the wet summer many articles are scarcer and dearer than for some seasons past, which whi is the reason of the annexed account exceeding the amount of 5 10 we hope, however, what we have done will meet your approval.

Sir We have the honor to be Your most obt Servants
Armacks & Striclain
