To THOMAS CADELL
New York Evening Post 30 Apr. 1887; Rae 361.
Mrs Ross of Crighton,1 now living in Welbeck Street is my particular friend, and the wife of Lieutenant–Collonel Patrick Ross, in the service of the East India Company, my very near relation. When she left this [? place] she seemed to intimate that she wished to have a copy of my last book from the author. May I therefore beg the favour of you to send her a copy of both my books, viz. of the Theory of Moral Sentiments and of the Enquiry concerning the ‘Wealth of Nations’, handsomely bound and gilt, placing the same to my account, and writing upon the blank–leaf of each, From the Author. Be so good as to remember me to Mrs Cadell, Mr Strahan and family, and all other friends, and believe me, ever yours,
[1 ]Mrs. Ross (d. 1803) was the wife of Smith’s cousin, Patrick Ross.
