May 16./ 65


Your letter came to hand this morning and the Wholesale price of the Transparens on Glass are 15/ per Dozen of which I have a large stock.

They are 3 ¼ circles for the Magic Lantern. The price of the 5 ½ which you wish to know. I have not done any so large but I can do them.

I will do them as cheaply as possible if when you come to town you will make a call I will show you what I have got. If you will be kind enough to bring a few of the Photographes <sic> you wish to be done I can then tell you what the cost will be. I do everything connected with Photography, for the trade.

I am Sir Your Obedt Servt

J. Smith
