He has constantly on hand, the most choice selection of Juvenile Books the city affords, and these he will sell at the very lowest Cash Prices. Where persons cannot visit the city in person, their orders will be promptly attended to, and as cheap and as carefully selected as though they came in person; any Books sent which are not wanted can be returned.
