My dear Talbot

The Photogenics <1> are come & very satisfactory they are. The group <2> is our favorite here, and I should be vy thankful for 2 (may I say 3) copies more of it – The purple tint has the best effect; it is more mellow. I have not before seen Yr perspective view of the Chapel – It has come out very well, I shd like another copy of that. This is very unreasonable but I am in no hurry, so will call for them myself in the course of the Autumn – If we had made Bunbury <3> sit down & put a wheelbarrow opposite the long side front of the Balcony what a pretty composition that would have made –

My Kind love to Lily.

Yrs vy Sincerly
