Robert Morris letter
Summary
Morris writes to the Baltimore merchants explaining why some bills payable in London may be returned protested. The severe winter caused the loss of several of his cargoes of tobacco, the poor quality of others, and the "great Scarcity of money in France" caused by recent events all contributed. He advises the firm, or any to whom they have sold the bills, to retain them and they will be honored. He urges the merchants to send the next ships as quickly as possible as their sales will help "lessen the damage."
