Dear Sir,

As I have been requested to read a paper on a Microscope Camera before the Society of Arts on Wednesday next and am informed that you applied Photography to the delineation of Microscopical Objects some years since, would you Kindly give me information as to date and the process &c employed? If you have notes relating to this application by other photographic Microscopists I should feel deeply obliged for any information as I should like to state, who have experimented on this subject and in what manner but still in a cursory way Trusting that you will excuse me troubling you in this matter

I am Sir Your Obedient Servant
Saml Highley Junior

H. F. Talbot Esq
