Doubting whether my box of books may have yet got to your hands, on account of the low state of our river and having since recieved sundry pamphlets which I wish to have bound up with those sent, I now send them in a [s]eparate package by mail. each contains a direction into what volume it is to be inserted. I salute you respectfully
