George Mason IV (December 11, 1725 - October 7, 1792) was a United States patriot, statesman, and delegate from Virginia to the U.S. Constitutional Convention. He wrote the Virginia Bill of Rights. He is considered to be one of the "Founding Fathers" of the United States.

Scope and Content

Writes concerning goods sent to him aboard the Liberty, Captain Outram. Has been informed by Messrs. Wallace, Johnson and Mune that the duties have been charged to his account. If so, he assumes the goods have already been entered. Does not wish to accidentally enter them twice, as he would be charged twice the duty.
