Nicolaas Henneman

1st December 1847

I wish to know whether you would like to set up in business on your own account as a Photographer if I were to lend you some money to begin with, & were to give you a license upon easy terms

I wish you to turn it over in your own mind, & let me know

If you were to do so I think you might do well to enter into partnership with Malone <1> as I think you two might do a good business in Regent Street <2>


1. Thomas Augustine Malone (1823-1867), photographer & chemist.

2. Henneman & Malone did open a studio at 122 Regent Street, called the Sun Picture Rooms for their terms, see Doc. No: 06097.
