Excerpt from Letters From the Earl of Peterborough to General Stanhope in Spain: From the Originals at Chevening Sir, My servants being in Holland, making at Liege and elsewhere those provisions for me that may be best and cheapest had in that country, which may be brought to us by the Dutch ships, such as tea, chocolate, rum, claret, Rhenish, Burgundy, and some eatables peculiar to them, as pickled herrings, and sturgeons, and stock fish, I send, too, for some little wearing things, as lace, and some sort of linen. This makes me desirous to kw whether my servants may t be useful to you in something there, if you please to make a calculation of what you desire, and what you will have expended; it will be inconvenience or trouble to me to lay down the money there, and have them brought to you amongst my goods, without any trouble or charge. Friend, I send you my letter to my Lord Treasurer open, and Harley's; seal them before you deliver them; it will make mine the shorter to you, and you will be instructed from both, and from what my wife will inform you, of what I expect for the public and myself.
