Wythe to John Norton, 8 September 1772
George Wythe asks John Norton to send him a quality telescope and a light stand for it.
Mr. John Norton
Merchant in London
I beg the favour of you to send me a telescope. For a good one I would go as far as eight or ten guineas. I would have a light stand to keep it steady upon. With the greatest respect
Your most obedient
Sept. 8th 1772
