Dear Sir

I have today been looking over papers and acsts [sic] of 1842 . 3 . & 4. for the purpose of answering the question you put, and find a Memorandum of the payment of £87. 18. 9 on March 26. 1844. – but cannot, at present, find any relating to some other payments which were made to Mr Awdry; <1> – they were small, and ceased at your instance as stated in a letter <2> dated Augst 22. 1844. – I presume that various papers relating to the matter remained in the hands of my late friend Mr Haslam, <3> and that I may have great difficulty in finding them, if they exist, – but from what I can make out by the numbers in the list of port[r]aits & copies taken, I should feel quite safe in Rating the total amount paid by me to you on Account of patent dues at under £120. –

Wishing you may yet be successful in the establishment of your right.

I remain Yours very truly
Henry Collen

H F Talbot Esq.
