Date8 July 1779
Extent1 f
Content DescriptionDoes not have Speechley's letter in front of him, so answers it from memory; argues that there are few booksellers that will be honest to any but their own 'fraternity'; suggests that if he was offered a good price for the remaining books by any creditable person in the trade then he should take it; has not seen extracts of the book in any periodicals nor has seen any reviews of it yet, although is sure this will happen in time; mentions the 'Terra' and the 'Sylva'.
