In early 1757, several hogsheads of GW's tobacco were shipped to England, and some were transported in Capt. John Thompson’s 130–ton Integrity. Some of the tobacco went to London merchant, Richard Washington, while the rest went to the firm of Anthony Bacon and Company. On 11 March 1757 Captain Thompson’s Integrity cleared the North Potomac Naval Office for London with 278 hogsheads of tobacco, but GW records in his Ledger A,16 that ten hogsheads of his tobacco aboard the Integrity were “lost.” The Integrity was used to transport some of GW's tobacco at other times as well.
