Perceiving by your favor of Aug. 31. that the 1st. vol. of le Petit Grandison has miscarried I went to the bookseller’s and have got it supplied. You will receive therefore with this letter the 1st. and 3d. vols. of le Petit Grandison, and the 10th. of the Friend of youth, which are the last. What comes out hereafter shall be forwarded as soon as it appears.—You may remember that some numbers...
The books you have last sent me are this moment come to hand, and all right except that the ‘Historical remarks on the taxation of free states’ printed by Richardson 1781. is not among them. I will still trouble you therefore to send it by some opportunity. I thank you for the dozen copies of the Notes on Virginia. The remaining 34. shall be sold so as to pay the 8d. sterl. a vol. their...

I imagine you have not sent the books hearing that I was on a journey. To those desired in the letters above...

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...
Finding on my return to this place that the bookseller to whom I had committed the plate of my map, instead of keeping it only a fortnight, had not yet delivered it to be forwarded to you, I demanded an instantaneous delivery of it. A thousand evasions have led me through three weeks, so that it was not till yesterday that I could obtain it, threatening on the return of my messenger without...
