My dear Sir

Do let me add to your collection of copied Papyri this, if you have it not already: and I shall make use of the liberty you have kindly given me to forward to you from Egypt any originals I may meet with.

If I can, as a poor idle wanderer over the shores of the Mediterranean, execute any commissions for you, pray command my best service. A letter will always reach me addressed to the care of

William Eynaud Esqre <1>

Pray present to the Lady Elizabeth Feilding <2> my respectful compliments and best thanks for delightful hospitalities and with a tender of the same to Mrs Talbot <3>, and your sweet children, I beg you to believe me, my dear Sir

very faithfully yours
Geo. W. Bridges

Fox Talbot Esqre
