My Dear Mr Talbot

I have been reading your Etymology with great pleasure & interest I have at times sought the derivation of some of our Slang Phrazes & I send you a list of words which will perhaps amuse you if they do not convince you.

Caroline sends her love to you & your Sisters

Believe me yours

W Napier

HF. Talbot Esquire
