An Odd Present To Shenstone

An Edinburgh acquaintance is related to have sent to Shenstone, in 1761,

as a small stimulus to their friendship, "a little provision of the best

Preston Pans snuff, both toasted and untoasted, in four bottles; with

one bottle of Highland Snishon, and four bottles Bonnels. Please to let

me know which sort is most agreeable to you, that I may send you a fresh

supply in good time."
