Friend Jefferson

As thy publick interestedness is well known to the inhabitants of the United States by numberless specimens, wilt thou be pleased to extend thy usefulness a little further and give the “American Tutor’s Assistant” a perusal and send me the results of thy reflections respecting the work? No doubt but there are some typographical errors in the work which shall receive prompt correction in a future edition and no pains shall be spared to render it if possible as uncontaminated as may be considering the nature of the work

By complying with the above request Thou wilt very much oblige thine &c

E. F. Marshall

P.S. The Book shall accompany this request.
