To Mathew Carey

Dear Sir

The copy of the catalogue you first sent me came only to the 200th page. in the latter part of that now received1 I find those underwritten which I will pray you to send me. Asserius may come by mail, but the other three volumes I would prefer to have sent by some vessel bound to Richmond. if addressed to Capt Bernard Peyton of that place he will pay freight & forward them to me. Accept the assurance of my great esteem & respect.
