Boston 17th Sept 1800
Mr Thomas Rotch
The unexpected decease of Mr Joseph Hussy whose business I have for a long time assisted in transacting has induced me immediately to commence on my own account. From my general knowledge in business & experience in the sales of oil and Candles, I presume to be able to make as speedy & profitable sales as any one.
Should you include to favour me with a share of your business you may depend on the strictest attention to the sales & punctuality in the remittances. The administration of the Estate of Mr Hussey will be conducted by his Son in Augs, William Mackay Junr With much respect your Dt Sevt
