July 12 1843.
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
