Royal Asiatic Society,

9th Feby 1863.
I wrote to Sir H. Rawlinson on receipt of your note. He has been out of town, but is now returned for good. He says he would not recommend your paper being published as it stands; but, if you would like, he would make some notes to it, which you would see, and emend if necessary;
and then the paper would do well for the Journal.
If you would prefer to communicate directly with Sir Henry on the subject, his address is: 1, Hill Street, Berkeley Square, London, W.
Mr Norris saw your paper, also, and he was of opinion that, a few notes or emendations would make it more valuable.
I remain, dear Sir, faithfully yours,
J W Redhouse
