Devizes Sepr 10 ‘59


The Photoglyphs are received, and will I doubt not be very acceptable at the meeting – Could you still further favour the Society with any information on the subject of the new invention, which could be read to the meeting?

Perhaps the notice published in the Photographic News for Novr last will be sufficient, but it would be much more agreeable if you could in person bring the subject before the society –

I have the honour to be Sir Your obliged & faithful servt
