Dear Talbot,

Many thanks for the loan of those beautiful photographs. <1> They were much admired last Saturday Evg and I intend to retain them untill after next Saturday the 9 unless you wish them otherwise disposed of. I will then return them to Sackville St. <2> In the meantime I gave Lady Byron <3> a treat to whom I lent them for a few hours.

I hope whenever you come to town and find I have an assembly of my friends on Saturday evening you will always consider yourself as invited and most wellcome [sic].

Ever truly Yours
C Babbage
