TranscriptDr [Dear?] Mr Searight
I have very often proposed
writing a line to you, to remind
you that you left some Books
which were your Fathers, in the
wardrobe with those I purchased
from you I think they should
be given to your sister as

them much as you would have
taken them, but it is likely
She would be Gratified

mentioned this to her or
any of the family let me
have a Line from you on
the subject when you
