Dear Sir,

Herewith I send you a revue of sacred "Assyrian Poetry" and also of the "Inscription of Esarhaddon" which please be kind enough to pass for press.

of the reprint of Vol 1 I send you the "Inscription of Kammurabi" the other papers are not yet ready, but I will not fail to send them in due course.

It has been decided, to oblige several gentlemen, that an extra volume (Assyrian) shall be issued simultaneously with the Egyptian volume, in July next.

Can you oblige us with the following texts?

Nebuchadnezzar. India House.

" " . Borsippa Text

Nabonidus Inscription.

To avoid delay in publication I must ask you to let us have any contributions by the first of May.

I hope it will not be troubling you too much to ask you to return the Esarhaddon proof by this messenger

I am dear Sir Yours faithfully
Robert Bagster

H. F. Talbot Esq F.R.S.r
