My dear Sir

In the hope of an opportunity of doing so personally I have delayed thanking you for the Pamphlet <1> you were so good as to send me I was much obliged for your recollection of me & still more for the pleasure of reading the Pamphlet which struck me as equally remarkable for the moderate & practical views and for clearness & force of expression.

Believe me Yours very faithfully

H. Fox Talbot Esqr
