I must ask the favor of you to send me by mail 2. copies of the Nautical Almanacs for the present year, and 2. also of the next year if already to be had. the English editions are best printed, but if none on hand, Blount ’s edition of N. York will do. I formerly wrote to you for S r John Sinclair ’s book of Agriculture; but I observe that mr Skinner of Baltimore is about publishing an...
