letter 8


Agreeably to the request contained in Mr Remsen's letter of yesterday, I beg leave to inform you that should I be continued the publisher of the laws of the United States,[5] I shall perform that duty, with accuracy and expedition, at the rate of one dollar for what is equal to one page of the edition of the laws printed by Childs & Swaine.

This is considerably under what I have hitherto had from the State of Pennsylvania, and much less than my fixed price for advertising.

I beg leave just to add that should the printer of any other reputable paper propose to undertake the business for a less sum I shall most cheerfully lower my price accordingly.

I have the honor to be,
Sir, your obedient
humble servant
And.w Brown
