I have to acknowledge the recept [sic] of yours, & beg to say in reply, that Mr Theyer whom I have seen this Morning, will leave London for the Continent, on Wednesday Morning next, and will feel a particular pleasure of being the Bearer of the collection for Prince Metternich, <1> aswell [sic] as for the Polytechnic Institution. Mr Theyer thinks if the later [sic] were adressed [sic] to the Gewerbe Verrein [sic] it would produce a greater effect.

yours very obediently
J. G. Mayer
