To this I take the liberty of referring you as to it’s contents. I must press the immediate sending the plate of my map, as the bookseller here had not struck off his whole quantity, and apprehends he shall suffer if...
I wrote you on the first day of this month, and hope you will have received the letter. To the books I then desired, be pleased to add Volney’s travels thro Egypt, Syria & c. printed by Robinson; The history of the internal affairs of Holland since 1783, printed also by Robinson if I recollect rightly.

I must refer you to my letter of Oct. 10. 1787. for an explanation of the credit I state on the next leaf for Watson’s Phil . III. as also for the maps. All I wished as to the maps was to avoid loss, which I shall not do, charging you 10d. a piece instead of 1/ a...

As he will not have left London when you receive this I will beg the favour of you to procure for me a copy of the small 12mo. edition of Blackstone’s commentaries, published I beleive in Ireland.
