Letter, 22 July 1810, of Thomas Cooper (1759-1839) was written from North[umberlan]d, Pennsylvania, to “Miss Cooper to the care of Mr. John Cooper at the Custom house, Philadelphia,” and asks her to complete miscellaneous errands.

These included asking Joseph Priestly [presumably Joseph Rayner Priestly (1793-1863)], to retrieve four magazine reviews left in Philadelphia by his father and to buy “4 oz of fly-stone at any of the hardware shops.”

Cooper also advises that she open the boxes he sent her carefully since “glass ware and plate and pictures are intermixed with your Cloaths.”
