My Dear Sir

I thank you for the return of the Zeitschrift and am very glad to hear you are going to take it regularly Mr Norris quotes the passage you speak of, incorrectly. it is as follows

<cuneiform passage of several lines>

the following line says “from xadatta I departed.” This is merely introduced as a date – Assur-bani-pal’s annals supply about half-a-dozen such passages giving in each case the God to whom the month was dedicated and the festival of any God which fell on the day mentioned

Yours respectfully

George Smith

H. F. Talbot Esq
