Comments: The letters of "Junius," originally appearing in the "Public Advertiser" from November of 1768 to January of 1772, represent one of the great mysteries of English literature. No author ever claimed credit for these letters, though they were ascribed to every prominent Whig of the period... Sir Philip Francis (1740-1818), who was a clerk in the War Office when the "Junius" letters were written, is generally considered to be the mystery writer, though he denied this association to the end of his life.

Let me take a moment to let you know how pleased I am not only with your timeliness and help, but also your honesty and commitment to your customers. As an instructor at Duquesne University, I am always telling my students about responsibility and, lately, some of the book dealers have given me unnecessary difficulties... I am very pleased with the service I received from your company and will inform my fellow faculty members that they can look forward to professional service from your book shop. Again many thanks and I look forward to future dealings with your company. - Tom W.
