To William Strahan

MS not found; reprinted from extract in Merwin Sales Company, Catalogue No. 557 (1914), p. 16.

[Philadelphia, November 16, 1753]

I wrote to you via Bristol and desired you to bespeak some Letter and a Press for me.7 I desired Mr. Hall to look out for such a Bill for me, but he has not been able to procure one at any reasonable rate. Among the lost [long?] list of type is 300 lb. long Primer with Figures and Signs sufficient for an Almanack.
