Royal Asiatic Society,

27th Decr 1861.
I beg to inclose receipt for the amount of your reduced composition.
The printer has not yet sent in his bill, so I can say nothing on that head as yet.
I have got from the French Government the published parts of Oppert’s work on Assyrian Antiquities. Unfortunately, the edition of Botta’s work is exhausted; and in lieu of it, we have only received the expression of M. Walewski’s regret.
Believe me, dear Sir, faithfully yours,
J W Redhouse
