Dear Sir

Mr Nasmyth seems to think you will accomplish what you want by a hydraulic press or Rollers, and, not knowing exactly your object, perhaps you may find the Electrotype process the best if you have got only a very delicate etching on your steel plates.

I am sorry this is all the information I have been able to procure for you. Should you think of writing him his address is “Penshurst” “Kent.” to which he returns on Monday.

Believe me dear Sir Very truly Yrs
A. Coventry
