Sir

Your favour with order came to hand yesterday, & we have this day packed for you in 3 paper parcels, the books in the Invoice prefixed.—As they make but 3 very small parcels, we have thought it adviseable to forward the whole per mail, instead of sending to Richmond as you desired.—Hope this will Meet your approbation.—   Our catalogue is now completed, & by tomorrow’s mail we shall forward a copy of it—   Your obd1 servts

M. Carey & son

P.S. We did not observe until the Invoice & letter were finished, that the sheet on which we were writing was torn.—
