Monto Nov. 9. 24.
I duly recd your favor of Oct. 30. covering the prospectus of a literary and religious to be weekly at Canonsburgh. I sincerely wish it success, but have seen so many failures of periodical literary public as to lessen confidence , however meritorious they may be in execution. scarcely ever going from home, and of course seeing few persons, I have no opportunity of solliciting subscn’s, and therefore return you the prospectus with my own signature only. I am in hopes you will have an agent in Richmond to recieve the annual , as remittences from hence to Canonsbg would be difficult. the facility of making payment will encorage subscribers Accept the assurance of my respect,
