Dear Mr Talbot,
I fear that I shall not be in Derbyshire when you pass through it. We are going to Lord Ansons’ <1> on Saturday next. Pray call upon the Duke, Matlock is only 9 miles distant & Chatsworth is well worth seeing.
With kind regards believe me Yrs truly
H. Fox Talbot Esqr
1. Thomas William, Viscount Anson, and 1st Earl of Lichfield. He was one of the parties to the marriage settlement of Lady Anne Hunloke in 1807. [See Hunloke deed of 1835: Derbyshire Record Office, D205B/T1].
