Having been accidentally prevented from going to Town before Christmas, I will be very much obliged to you to have the kindness to forward to me the Assyrian lithographs addressed to me at this place.
I am not aware of the size of the lithographs, but if they can be folded without injury, I should wish them sent by post.
If this would injure them, I should then wish them sent in a parcel per Great Western Railway with a line of advice per post.
Trusting you will excuse this trouble I remain with many thanks Yours very faithfully
