Copybook of Letters and Invoices, 1767-1775 [Washington]

This volume appears to be a continuation of Volume 3, and like it, includes Washington's copies of the letters he sent to British merchants and suppliers concerning the sale of his tobacco and purchases of goods in return. It has been bound together with Volume 5, which contains invoices. It also contains letters relating to local matters, including Washington's legal, financial, and land dealings, the estate of Martha Washington's first husband, Daniel Parke Custis, and the education of her son John (Jackie) Parke Custis. As in Volume 3 some letters deal with political matters. See, for example, Washington's April 5, 1769 letter to George Mason in which he expresses his views about the boycotting of British goods. Images starting at 210 belong to volume 5.

There are 256 pages.
