Roy. Inst <1>
March 2nd/41


I beg to thank you for your ready compliance with my request. If it will be any convenience to you, I will send one of the Porters of the Institution, accustomed to such charges, to any part of Town you may direct, for the things you intend for the Library Table <2> on the 12th instant

Among them, will there be any of the earliest, or intermediate ones, to mark the progress of improvement? or would you prefer confining them wholly to the calotype?

I am Sir Your very faithful Servant
W. Varlo Hellyer.

H. F Talbot Esqre


1. Royal Institution, London.

2. This was his announcement of the Calotype. [See Doc. No: 04197].
