January 7, 1737 - Malbon, Cant

York-Town, Jan. 5. This Day arrived the Ship Carter, Capt. Samuel Malbon, from London and Madeira, having on board 44 Pipes of Wine for Gentlemen in this Country.

He left London the 18th of October, and informs us, That Tobacco was then sold at a good Price: That few of the Ships were arrived, which sailed hence with the last Crop: And that Capt. Constantine Cant, died on his Passage home. He saw another Ship on this Coast, but does not know whence she came, or where bound.
