... business. Afew years later, it was deemed advisable for the brothers to separate, and while John remained at the "Bible and Crown," St. Paul's Churchyard, James joined a Mr. Fletcher in the same locality, and started afresh. One especially fortunate venture was the publication of Smollett's continuation of Hume, which brought its lucky publishers upwards of 10,000, alarger profit than had previously been made on any one book.
