Transportation to Detroit, Sandusky & c.
Charles Smith
No. 65, Quay-Street, Albany

Having completed his arrangements, is now prepared to undertake, as agent, the transportation of any quantity of merchandize destined for the upper Lakes. He guarantees to his customers that the cost of transporting packages of ordinary bulk, from New-York to Detroit, shall in no case exceed FOUR DOLLARS AND FIFTY CENTS per cwt. and that sum shall include every charge if the goods are shipped by "THE WESTERN LINE" of sloops for Albany. As it is his determination to employ one but the most faithful and experienced teamsters, he has the strongest reason to believe that no unnecessary delays will be experienced on the routes; and from the high reputation of the several agents on the communication west of this city, gentlemen may feel assured of every exertion to adjust, in the most prompt and honorable manner, all disputes arising from improper conduct in the carriers. If required, six months credit will be given, for satisfactory new-York acceptances or for approved endorsed notes of this city.

Albany, February 3, 1818.
