8vo, 2 pp. Bifolium. Thirty-five lines. Text clear and complete. Good, on lightly-aged paper. Second leaf addressed, with postmarks, to 'Dr. Pultenely | Blandford | Dorset', and docketed by Pulteney. Signed 'John Aikin'. He thanks him for 'the offer of assistance'. He only has 'one of the three books you mentioned, & should be very glad of the perusal of Anthony's apology, & Jones on Buxton baths'. The books willl be 'carefully returned, with my best acknowledgments to the gentleman who favours me with the loand of them'. Since the publication of his 'Specimen' he has 'met with several friendly & valuable offers of such assistance', and hopes that his 'desiderata of printed books at least will be pretty well filled up'. Reference to the Scottish physician Maxwell Garthshore (1732-1812). He would like 'other mutual communications in the way of our profession; but how imperfectly can this be done at the distance of 300 miles!' Hopes to convey something to Pulteney 'by means of my bookseller Mr Johnson'. The last paragraph concerns his father. N° de ref. de la librería 9516
