The 1922 letter discusses Shields' purchase of the day before of a stock of approximately 700 sheets of various sizes of 18th century paper, on which he hoped to have printed a small run of 'Morley's "An Apology for Boccaccio"' - presumably part of the text of Morley's translation of the De mulieribus claris. Shields had consulted with A. Edward Newton, and, at his recommendation, with Julius Weyl of the printers Stern Co., but found the price that Weyl quoted too high. He says that he was going to consult "a man ... who has a hand press," hoping 2TLsS, 1922 May 12; 1923 Mar 22 to Mr. Felix that a smaller firm would work cheaper.
