Royal Asiatic Society,
5, New Burlington Street, W.,
18th Decr 1861.
On Saturday I read the paragraph of your note to the Council, in which you offer to bear half the expense of printing your articles on Cuneiform Inscriptions.
The Council have ordered mention to be made in the Minutes of your liberal offer, and gave me instructions to convey to you their sincere thanks for the aid thus contributed to the means of the Society.
I have the honour to be, Sir, Your obedient Servant,
J W Redhouse
