Description
He believes that while "your Governers Nephew L. Lincoln" is in such friendship with the minister there is not much to fear of his continuance in the government; thanks Colden for seeds; it is probable that the French may sell American ginseng at great profit to the Chinese; if so, the trade must be managed with great cunning and secrecy on account of Chinese restrictions; [Peter] Kalm must have been disappointed in not meeting Colden; hears that the former intends to visit Niagara.
