1-1/2 pp. pen and ink on folded sheet, with integral address leaf to Pickering at 57 Chancery Lane. 183 x 118 mm. Dibdin to Pickering. Remnant of prior mounting on address leaf with small piece from corner Item #261858
A good letter to Pickering, Bookseller and Publisher, concerning a complex financial transaction with another publisher: "Major paid his bill on Saturday; and thus far all is right. If you have parted with my bill, due on Saty, at Scotts, for £100, will you oblige me by holding it over 'till Thursday the 16th …”
It seems likely that 'Major' was the publisher John Major (1782-1849) who supported many of Dibdin's publications and who eventually went bankrupt because of his author's speculations.
