Dear Sir,

As about 32 sheets make up a volume of our Journal, and the remainder of vol. III is nearly all in type, will it be convenient to you to begin vol. IV with the continuation of your Assyrian Glossary? You may begin the printing at any time you like, and the printer may continue the paging of your private copies where the first part left off, which I think is the arrangement you first proposed.

Our publisher has complained, I think justly, that, although he had supplied Messrs Harrison with his own paper for your article, they substituted this inferior paper. We must endeavour to prevent the recurrence of this mistake.

Believe me to remain, dear Sir, yours very faithfully
Reinhold Rost.

H. Fox Talbot, Esq.
Lacock Abbey
