My Dear Sir
In both Tablets and the cylinders the passage you mention has <cuneiform> there is no doubt about any of the characters <cuneiform> is used in several places for a dream or apparition by Assur-bani-pal – thus when his soldiers feared to cross the river Itite in the face of the army of Umman aldas who had fortified the other bank he tells us the Goddess of Arbela
appear sent a dream in the night to his soldiers &c &c.
I shall be glad of the copies you speak of as I have a friend who would like to have them – I have been waiting hoping to have my new paper from Germany – I have seen a copy but they have not yet sent mine they have printed it with several errors – as soon as I get my copy I will send you the corrections for them – they did not send it to me to correct by which also some additional information gained since I sent the paper is omitted – let me know if I can verify anything else for you
