Dr Sir

As I take a great interest in the Assyrian inscriptions, and have made considerable progress in the study by half of the labours of Hincks Rawlinson & others and as the Museum is now photographing a series of the clay tablets &c. for distribution among persons engaged in the study of this branch of antiquarian research; I should be much gratified if you would give me a copy of the work at the time of its completion.

Believe me to remain Dr Sir Yours very Turly
H. Fox Talbot
