Saratoga Springs, 16th:, of 2nd: 1820
As it is customary for the Authors of Literary works to ask the opinion of the judicious respecting the propriety of their performance I thought I should not act amiss if I should ask thee to give thine on mine. Therefore if it be not inconsistent with thy feelings & leisure wilt thou please to give the American Tutor’s Assistant a review & send me thy ideas as soon as thou canst conveniently.
I am thine &c
Elihu F. Marshall
