Dear Mr Talbot
Quite at your leisure will you enlighten my ignorance on this point? On the plan commonly called [illegible] Susa Layard <3> series 2. Pl. 49 (or 48) is a brief Legend one word apparently in Cuneiform.
Does this word read Susa? Am I justified in saying that the plan is known to be Susa from the name there on?
Ever sincerely Yrs
W. S. W. Vaux
H. Fox Talbot Esq
