Whether it may be prudent to increase the number to fifteen hundred is a question which I submit entirely to your consideration & decision. Should it suit Mr. Sidney to begin printing on Monday next and to call or send for a part of the work on Saturday or Sunday, if more convenient to himself, I shall be ready to deliver."
