Joseph Coolidge to Nicholas P. Trist
|My dear Nicholas||Friday. [January 1829]|
I see that Mr J’s books are to be sold in Washington: by the recommendation of my friends, I wish you would send on Catalogues for distribution: any, Member of Congress, not exceedingly conscientious, will frank the packet for you: they should be sent, also, to the other cities, not forgetting Richmond.
I have heard nothing from you respecting the paper for “Jeffersons Works”—; in the mean while Wells & Lilly have a new edition of his “notes” in press!—let the geographies come as soon as possible.
This is a business letter, and the postage should be chgd to expence in the books; but cannot you tell me of some way to save you this charge hereafter?
give me a name for My boy.
