Melksham, Dec 24, 1856
Mr Britton intends disposing of his collection of paintings, drawings, &c. and has sent me some views of interesting objects in this neighbourhood for that purpose. I take the opportunity therefore to send you for inspection four drawings by Pyne of Leacock Abbey s <sic> Church, the prices of which are marked upon them. Should you decline purchasing any of them you will oblige by returning them to me at your earliest convenience.
I am, Sir, Your most obedt servt
H. F. Talbot, Esqr
