MORE PAPERWORK

I have this day, set about the task of creating paperwork for mr. P. A. McClintock, Bookbiner & Stationer, whom you may recall, lately rebound one of my volumes.

Handwritten letter to a mr. Jas. McVicker, Merchant in Larne.

With LOTS of signatures at the bottom.

A trade license for mr. McClintock from Virginia, 1763.

A tax receipt for mr. McClintock.

A letter from LONDON for mr. Benn at Fort Loudoun. I will be able to deliver it into his hands when I return to the fort in March next. Notice the English postmarks.

I do not know the contents of the letter, but it bears black wax upon its back which generally means bad news is contain'd within.

Very nice work, sir!

I guess I better post some of my account books. It'll give me some "content" since I've been rather slack these months. :-)

Kind Sir,

You do me honor and my family honor by bringing this letter to life. Thank you. A job well done on it and the trade and tax documents. I will be seeking your fine hand in the future for more, I assure you.

YHS,

Paul A. McClintock
Bookbinder and Stationer

Mr. McClintock,

I should have your packet in the hands of the postrider very soon.
