Dear Sir,

I beg the favour of you to send me the printed jour-
nals of the house of commons from September 1766,
(until which I have them compleat), and of every
future session so soon as they are published, an
handsome large inkstand fit for a public office,
a treatise concerning money-matters, (I think the
title is 'Of civil oeconomy') written by sir James
Stewart, and Fawkes's Theocritus. I am,

Sir,
Your most obed serv
G. Wythe.
