My dear Sir,

I beg you to accept our cordial thanks for your very kind subscription to the Tercentenary Fund.

The Laboratories & Gymnasium are on the point of being begun, though we have been obliged to borrow nearly £3000 to enable us to carry out this part of our large enterprise.

The la design for the Laboratories has had the advantage of being overlooked by Professor Tyndal, Rev W. Spottiswood and Rev. Aug. V. Harcroft who for several years assisted Sir B. Brodie at Oxford.

I venture to send you a copy of our [“Prolusiones”?] which were recited the day before yesterday. They contain some really good work.

I am, my dear Sir, with great respect, very truly yours
H. Montague Butler

H. Fox Talbot, Esq.
