Curzon St
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

H. F. Talbot Esqre
