My Dear Sir,

Mr Henneman<1> told me he should take a positive on Glass in the Camera from any negatives of mine you might like to use,<2> in which case he could reduce the photograph to any size desired so I sent the large pictures because they were better subjects than I could find among any I have of a smaller size.

I am My dear Sir, Yours truly,
Francis Bedford

H. Fox Talbot Esq
