Dr Sir

Allow me to ask if you are going into Spain to observe the eclipse and if you have decided on the place you mean to go to? I am going to the Pyrenees and if my health permits, I propose to cross the frontier, but not speaking the Spanish language I should probably find a difficulty in getting on, and therefore should like to know what place is to be the headquarters of the British observers

I remain Yours very truly
H F. Talbot
