Saturday.

Dear Sir,

I hasten to scrawl off a dozen words to [save?] the post. The enclosed is just come from the lithographer; it was his copy for the tome.

I dare say you are right about kutzi (see [hebrew] the end), but I do not know the word.

You will see that I make no changes in the work, but set down just what I see in the copies brought home; leaving it to Rawlinson <1> to make it right; I do not consider myself as having any discretion in the matter: though I think I see errors. Dont hurry to return the copies, for I shall have no reply from Sir H. R <2> for a couple of months, but in the mean time I shall be glad with any observations. You will see from the collation that I have had some difficulty about fitting in the lines, and I cannot but have made errors. The original copies which I have at my disposal are very bad, and what I now see will give you no notion of the uncertainty which attends the proper collocation of the lines. The copies were evidently taken from the rocks under considerable [difficulties?]

Yours in much haste
Edwin Norris
