P.S. I shall not, I am afraid, be able to call upon you till the beginning of the week; but shall I send you copy in the mean time?-- Excuse this headlong scrawl.
Hampstead-- Dec. 11. 1816.
Will you oblige me by letting me know by the bearer, whether it would be contrary to etiquette, or to any other proprieties of your trade, or to your own wishes, to associate the names of one or two other booksellers in the title-page of this little volume of mine, provided they are unexceptionable in point of character. One of them is an eminent house, with whom I should suppose you would have no sort of objection to shine with;-- the other is one just about to commence in the persons of two most respectable & intelligent young men, whom I should wish, if possible, to serve by introducing them to the public in good company. Yr's sincerely,
