H. Fox Talbot Esq.

Dear Sir

I duly received your letter and I shall be most happy to send you a glass impression of Prince Alfred’s portrait for the purpose of your experiments in printing engraving<.> I hope to be able to manage this by tomorrow or next day – I am not sure whether it shd be done upon plain clear glass or on opal glass a new material very good for transparencies and such as I think might suit your purpose – I shall at all events send you a small specimen of this that you may see if it will be likely to answer

I am Dear Sir Yours very truly
John Moffat
