Dear Sir,

I shall have much pleasure in receiving your son as my private Pupil in Mathematics. He seems to have indeed a very fair capacity for the subject, though unfortunately he had not even commenced Euclid before he came here.

The only difficulty that occurs, in the matter you allude to, was that Mr Scott wished to have the Classical Instruction of my boys in the Sixth Form as well as of those below, entrusted to him. I conceived it to be for many reasons important that I should retain these, at least, myself: and as Dr Vaughan fully coincided with me in this, the negotiation was broken off.

Believe me Dear Sir Your vy faithfully

Thos Henry Steel

H F. Talbot Esq
