Philadelphia 5 Aug: 1854 Dear Sir: Your kind letter of 15 July was duly reed. - Five nos. of my Book have been published and I have delayed answering your letter expecting to have the 6th no. ready before this time, when I intended to send the six nos. in a package to you, as you had the kindness to request, - I have been disappointed however, by the Engraver and will you probably have to wait two weeks, but at the earliest moment will send the play. I shall be greatly obliged by any exertions you may do me the favor to make, and if five subscribers can be obtained I will with pleasure send six copies, if you will accept the additional copy, and consider myself still indebted for your kindness, - as present my prospect is to discontinue the work as originally proposed as the completion of 10 nos. - though I have much material for continuing the publication. very respectfully John Cassin Robert N. Kennicott Esqr Chicago Ill. If necessary or important I can send the 5 nos. immediately.
