122 Regent St <1>
1st March 1850

To H F Talbot Esq


I returned only yesterday from the Potteries not finding any letter from you I enquired if you were in Town.

I have some slabs with me made by Davenport<2> unglazed also some pieces of china from Minton’s<3> Shall I send them to [illegible] or to Lacock ?

I have a note from Mr Harper <4> that I should like to speak to you about. I am the bearer of this note & can give you his proposal.

Since writing to you from Etruria<5> I have conferred with Mr [illegible deletion] Garrett<6> about a plan for the slabs It is a modification of the one I mentioned. Shall you have time to see me; or shall I write to Lacock?. –

your obedt Servt
