3d Oct 1871
Having heard from Dr Birch that you are anxious to hear about your paper, I now write to say that it will be printed off in due sequence when the pagination of the volume is arranged, this is only waiting for the Council to correct a few pages of introductory matter and no further delay will take place – The papers are to follow in the order in which they are read –
You will I presume allow the usual initials to follow after your name as in the case of Dr Birch & Mr Smith
Your paper “on the Religion of Assyria” is announced for November – may I beg that you will arrange to have it ready (in print) by then?
I remain Dear Sir Yours Resply
