With this you have the nearest approach to an impression which we have been able to take from the small blocks <1>

We find them too shallow in their present condition, but have now no doubt that if they were "bit" deeper we could manage to prove them easily

You have also with this a proof with Tint, of the large Engraving.

Yours respectfully
William Banks
