Two letters on a single page. The first part is a copy of Longman's 21 February 1774 letter, which discusses the settling of a bill, an order for books, and Longman's confidence that Knox will remit payment. The second part indicates that he has sent eight trunks and asks Knox to forward a box to Joseph Barrell. Longman was a London bookseller.
