James Ross writes William Young, a bookseller and printer in Philadelphia, regarding the publication of books on grammar. Ross, a Professor of Greek and Latin at Dickinson, offers edits and improvements to Young's "edition of the rudiments, now in the press." Ross explains how he has "spared no pains to examine the best authorities." If Young publishes it, Ross asks for "50 copies of the prosody in sheets for my trouble chiefly designed for the Trustees of Dickinson College." Transcript included.
