George Wythe asks John Norton to send him a quality telescope and a light stand for it.

Letter text

Mr. John Norton
Merchant in London

Dear Sir,

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
G. Wythe
Sept. 8th 1772
