In answer to yours concerning those books I have to say that I have
made enquiry concerning them as far as I consider there is any prospect of
obtaining them for you, and not having been able to trace them in the least
degree I have determined to give up the pursuit, I would recommend you to enquire
after them of , as
the only chance I know of at present. Your’s &c &c J. S.
Mr Jacob Stollings. P S. Since writing the above I have
ascertained of one man (who told me) that he saw have
the Books, but what he did with them he knows not.
