Dec. 22d 1856
The correspondence, which has taken place between you and me respecting the copies of the litho-graphed Assyrian inscriptions for which you applied to the Trustees, has been communicated to Sir H. Rawlinson who promised me to let me have his views on the subject. I cannot at present do more than inform you of this. You shall hear from me again as soon as I myself hear from Sir Henry.
I have the honor to be, Sir Your most Obed Ser
P.S. Mr. Butler has just shown me your letter of the 14th. I do not find from the minutes of the meeting of the 13th that the Trustees have acceeded to your request. Your letter to Mr. Butler was delivered here only this afternoon.
H. Fox Talbot Esqre
