Dear Sir –
I take the liberty of sending you a few calotypes <1> executed by myself and brother, <2> in testimony of the great pleasure we have derived from Your discovery – I hope they will not be devoid of interest from the objects which they picture, whatever may be their rank as specimens of the art –
and I am respectfully yours
