July 22. 1843.
My dear Talbot,
I am sorry to trouble you again by writing. Pray excuse it for I am anxious not to lose the benefit of the kind offer whh you made me of some Calotype <1> teaching.
In yr last note to me (whh I have by me) you named the 22d as the day appointed with Mr Fellows; but I find you are not in town. Whether you are where I direct this letter – upon a guess, I I [sic] know not; but I take my chance. Have you altered your day?
I am going out of town myself, I believe, for a couple of nights next Tuesday; and I must do the same about the 1st of August. – I shall with these exceptions be kept here probably till the middle of the latter month, & will as far as may be make every other engagement bend to that whh you offer me.
Believe me yrs very truly
Jn Stuart Wortley
