Mr Hill, a prominent Chicago antiquarian bookseller, responds to Miss Tenney, who, we inferred, offered Mr Hill some books for possible purchase, which he declines, noting "there seems to be very little demand for them at the present time." A circumstance, unfortunately, still experienced by many of us remaining in the trade.
