Higginbotham. I regret extremely that all the copies of Hutton’s Mathematics had been disposed of previously to the receipt of your letter—Nor can I procure one from any of the Stores in town. I will however endeavour to procure a copy from the North as soon as possible and send it to you without delay. With great respect and esteem, your Obt Servt
