Dr Woods
25 December 1851

Thinking that your Letter would probably appear in the Athenĉum <1> of next Saturday I sent a reply to be inserted at the same time. But I find by a Letter from Mr Robert Hunt <2> that your communication has not reached the Editor of the Athenĉum. I have therefore forwarded to him the copy of it with which you favored me, and I believe he has transmitted to you my reply.

I hope this will be satisfactory to you and remain Dear Sir yours truly
