I want a favor of you when you get whae Br H Brown lives I want you to get some odd No of the Old Messenger & advocate that he has on hand, get the 11 & 12 No's of the 2nd vol, and as many numbers of the third 3rd vol as you can get. I have got all the first vol & to the 10th of the 2nd but lack most all of the 3rd vol & as I dont know the odd No lacking of the 3rd vol if you should make out the whole of the 3rd vol it would not do any hurt & I will make it right with Br Brown W.
