31 Sackville Street, London <1>
July 3d 1827

Dear Sir,

I have just received a letter from Mr Utzschneider <2> of Munich informing me that the articles you ordered of him last year are at last sent off, together with some others for myself. They are not however yet arrived in Town. I shall have some difficulty in distinguishing your things from mine, unless you can supply me with a Copy of the Memorandum you made at the time. Mine I have mislaid somewhere.

When they arrive, shall I forward them to you at Slough, or send them to your house in town?

Believe me Yours most truly
Henry Fox Talbot
