Sir

I shall be happy to forward your acknowledgement to Mr Pretsch.

I have just received from Mr Pretsch another photograph for your self a very highly magnified representation of a newly hatched larva of the Bambyx pini

will you do me the favour to let me know how I should send it to you

If it would not be trespassing upon your courtesy it would afford me considerable pleasure to possess some trifling picture of your own execution it would so much enhance the interest of my little collection.

I am Sir Your faithful Servant
J. Bagster
