Custom House Balto Decr 26 1821
I have recd a letter this morning from Mr J Le Souf Vice Consul of the U’ States London, with the bill of lading for a box of books on your account, directed to my care. You will please to give me direction how to forward them. Though as the season is thickening round us, I am disposed if an opportunity offers to send them to Richmond, under a persuasion that they are for your own use at home; or at any rate for some neighbouring institution.
I have the pleasure and more to subscribe myself, with all the wishes the season & past recollections inspire,
Jno H Mc culloch
