4th Augst 1858
My dear Sir
I am now at liberty and shall be very glad of an interview with you – I propose running down into Wilts for two or three days next week – and will regulate my movements so as to suit your engagements if you will oblige me by a line saying upon what day or days I shall find you at home and disengaged –
I am sorry to say the Iron trade shows very trifling improvement –
H. F. Talbot Esqre.
