EDINBURGH

June 9 1863

Dear Sir,

I am very glad by your’s [sic] of yesterday to hear of your being still in the neighbourhood; & shall have much pleasure in alluding, [sic] to a plate by you, in the preface, and trust to its being ready in time, regretting only the extra trouble which you have had in preparing it.

The two new examples which you have kindly sent, appear decided advances in clearness and force, important qualities in book plates,

& I remain, Dear Sir Yours very truly
C. Piazzi Smyth
