I have just received from Sir Henry Rawlinson the letter of which I enclose a copy, <1> and in accordance with your request have much pleasure in transmitting to you this day by the Great Western Railway, a parcel containing a copy of the Tiglath Pileser and Sennacherib Inscriptions.

I remain, Sir, Yours faithfully
A Panizzi

My dear Panizzi

Mr. Fox Talbotís Note<2> is quite satisfactory and you can accordingly send him at once the two rolls of Lithographed Inscriptions with Mr Butler,<3> one of Tiglath Pileserís, and the other of Sennacheribís.- These are the only two yet finished, but several others are nearly ready

Yours sincerely
(Signed) H Rawlinson
