From Samuel Wesley in Euston Street, London, to Thomas Jackson, discussing in detail his setting to music of several psalms(?) from the 1825 edition [of the Methodist Hymn Book].
He feels that is only right to offer to the [Methodist Book] Committee first refusal of the copyright on the above. He feels that £150 would be a reasonable price to pay.
Jackson may recall that Wesley's printed edition of the Handel manuscripts sold 1800 copies, and that he afterwards sold the plates for a generous sum.
