Curzon St
July 12 1843.

Dear Talbot,

I have a great inclination to try my hand at a little Calotyping, when I get away into the Country this summer; – if ever that shd occur. –

I wonder whether you wd give me the benefit of a few hints on the subject if I were to call on you at any time that might suit you? – I take my chance by writing this because I heard you were come back from yr tour.<1>

Yrs very truly
Jn Stuart Wortley
