    NEW BEDFORD, March 18th, 1861.

    MR. WM. STILL:-Dear Sir-Dr. Powell called to see me and informed me that you bad a medical lexicon (Dictionary) for me. If you have such a book for me, it will be very thankfully received, and any other book that pertains to the medical or dental profession. I am quite limited in means as yet and in want of books to prosecute my studies. The books I need most at present is such as treat on midwifery, anatomy, &c. But any book or books in either of the above mentioned cases will be of use to me. You can send them by Express, or by any friend that may chance to come this way, but by Express will be the safest way to send them. Times are quite dull. This leaves me well and hope it may find you and family the same. My regards to your wife and all others.

    Yours, &c., THOMAS BAYNE,

    22 Cheapside, opposite City Hall.
