Thomas Everard letter to John Norton, 1768 May 12
The News Papers Published here can
afford you but little Entertainment and should not
have troubled you with any of them had I not thought
the Farmers Letters well worth your reading.
Capt Lilly arrived this day and the rest
of the ships are dailey expected. Tobacco Sells here
at 22/6 and 25/ pCt. great part is bought up so
that I imagine several Ships will find much
difficulty in Loading. My Compliments to
Mrs Norton and be assured I am with much
Your obliged hble Sert.
