Madam August- 1764

In an Invoice to Mr Cary I have directed all the goods for Miss Custis's use to be got from you as I approvd of your last years choice - Such things as Misses of her age usually wear here I have sent for; but if you can get those which may be more genteel and proper for her, I shall have no objections to it, provided it is done with frugality, for as she is only nine years old a superfluity, or expence in dress would be altogether unnecessary - you will please to observe that all her things is to be charged separate from mine altho both accounts will be paid you by Robt. Cary Esq & Co. 1

I have also ordered a few things for my own use together with a pair of stays which I beg may be very good, easy made, and very thin, - The Ruffles you sent last year I have kept myself and desired Mr Cary to pay you for them - Mr Washington wrote Mr Cary in February last to purchase of you a french necklace & earings for me - if they are not already sent, I woud rather choose a blew Turkey stone Necklace and Earings sent in their place if the price does not exceed two Guineas -

I am Madam
Yr very Hble Servt
