Dear Mr Talbot

I beg to thank you for your kindness in sending me ‘The Legendary Tales’ <1> which I shall read with great pleasure –

Your sejour in Wales was not of long enough duration, to provide you with any materials for your collection. But the Welsh pique themselves on their tales of Ancient Days – If you should ever penetrate into our regions again, perhaps you may think some of them worthy your notice

Pray believe me
Yrs vy try
Eliz Dawkins Pennant
