Dear Grove

Having a great deal of writing to do this evening before I leave Town, I cannot accept your kind invitation to dinner In your letter <1> you do not advert to the fact that the patent in question was taken by me long before either Your advice to me or my own experience The question is, whether having taken it I shall support it or not

It should seem that the answer to that question must depend on circumstances. Is it worth supporting or not? Is it a scientific curiosity or an important new manufacture? Upon these points you shall receive information

Believe me Yours very truly
H. F. Talbot
