Sir

May I request the favor of an explanation of the following Assyrian names at your earliest convenience?

Asshu-lush.

Bel-lush.

Iva-lush.

Bel-ip.

Bel-ipni.

Shamas-ipni.

I wrote a series of Papers in an educational Serial last year, on Scripture Names, including most of the Assyrian Babylonian, Egyptian, & Persian, &c., & intend shortly to have them reprinted, but would like to make them as accurate as possible, & add any new illustrations or analogies I may be able to get. I presume that you are fully aware, many of the Foreign Names have hitherto been explained in Biblical Dictionaries, &c., erroneously, as if of Heb. origin. I shall be very happy to forward for your acceptance the Nos of the Periodical containing the Papers previously alluded to, & glad to avail myself of any suggestions or corrections you may be kind enough to make. Hoping you will excuse the liberty I have taken of troubling you with this Note

I am Sir, Yours, very respecty
William Greenwood Hird

To H. Fox Talbot, Esq.
11 Great Stuart Street.
Edinburgh.
