Sir I hope you will send me some of the wine this week as I are quite of that sort
I should like to have it has much like the the other as possable it was a little tart and had not been refined with the sulfer wich you sent me it got very fine with standing I tried to introduce it in the house as sidar and I think it will take well but do not make it known
I wish you to send it as much like cider as you can. the bottle you sent has some smell to it like the sulfer I can give it time to refine itself and should like to have some to go on with if you cannot send more, send too casks till the next time your team comes you will oblige me by sending some soon
Yours &c
S Lucas
