Summary

Robert McIndoe was a silk merchant based near Virginia Street in Glasgow. In this letter, Robert asks him to send 'fifteen yards black lutestring silk’, ’the same kind as that of which I bought a gown & petticoat from you formerly.’ Perhaps Robert is referencing the black wedding gown his wife Jean wore earlier in that same year.
