  Pinkertons’ Geography
Leland’s Demosthenes
Northern Antiquities (of Europe) translated from Mallet, by Percy—

Cleaveland’s Mineralogy—all of which we already have. If you do not wish to retain a duplicate of the same work, am I authorised to deliver such to Mr Jones on Mr Hilliards account.

With the highest respect I am sir
