Dear Sir

The ‘Academy’ tells me that on Jan. 6 you read a paper on some Illustrations of the Book of Daniel from the Assyrian Inscriptions, <1> furnishing Evidence of extreme forms of punishment &c

Will you allow me a perusal of your paper?

I am preparing the Commentary on that Book for the ‘Speaker’s’ Bible, & it would be a matter of great interest to the reader if – through your discoveries – I might refer to & quote from your paper.

I have always felt that the Inscriptions would – as they were deciphered – furnish such illustrations as you have just published & I should be only too glad if – thanks to your help – I might assist in inducing those, who still impugn the decipherment of the Inscriptions, to reconsider what is so replete with interest & instruction.

I am, dear Sir, very faithfully yrs
J. M. Fuller
