[[Loyds?]] 19th Oct 1829

Mrs Wintonne,

We send up the samples of Cassimere & Domestic for [[Shutengz?]] etc. as requested as also the other articles ordered with the exception of the leather which Frederick has laid aside. We purchased the whips with a lot of other whips, all of which was omitted in packing and we fear that we shall not receive them as the bundle is so small the gentleman will be afraid to send it by the way of Pha fearing it may be lost. We regret that the Bonnett could not be procured. We left the order in Balto. with a Milliner to have the Bonnett ready by the time we returned, when we returned to Balto. she informed us that a fine ^[[insertion]] [[strikethrough]] Blk [[/strikethrough]] [[/insertion]] Black Leghorn Bonnett could not be procured in Balto. or Philadelphia that she had sent to Pha. for the purpose of obtaining one without success. Should you conclude to purchase any other kind, if you will inform us we will attend to. We succeeded in procuring all the various articles you requested except the Bonnett and Cord & Tassel for a childs cloak & whips.

Yours Very Resply
Pitt, Dolyn & Ellery

Transcription Notes:
- "all of" was an insertion - big ink curve mark over "f" in "fine." Do not see the strikethrough for "Blk" insertion. ink at the bottom of "Blk" is the residual ink from when the letter was folded. - "Pha" mentioned in the letter early on probably Philadelphia, which is mentioned again later. - Note: For the last name in the signature, the "+" for and is connected to the top loop of the "E"
