As I shall not be offended with the decision of the Council <1> (of which by the way, I will be much obliged to you to inform me by the post, as I shall not be able to attend the meeting in the evening) I therefore shall not withdraw my paper, but leave it to the Council to decide –
With great regard
believe me to remain
Yours very truly
H. Fox TalbotP.S. May I beg the favour of your reading to the Council, the enclosed few lines?
