Richmond March 28th 1821
I take the liberty of inclosing you a copy of the Rhyming Primer, & Spelling Book, with the view of procuring your concurrence with several other gentlemen in recommending them to Commissioners of the Primary Schools of Virginia, should they meet your approbation.
I am daily expecting a Stereotype edition from New York, in which great improvements have been made, by extending the tables of Spelling and correcting the few literal errors that have occured in this edition. I inclose you the original signitures of judge Marshall, Govr Randolph, and others, and would be greatly flattered if the list could be closed with your approbation.
