A thousand thanks my dear Mr Talbot for your very kind recollection of me – I assure you I shall value your Book <1> most highly – the kind attentions of those one has known from their Childhood, are most gratifying to those who are grown old, & going fast down Hill –
Yours very truly
Henry Fox Talbot Esqre
