Decr 6.

R. Taylor hopes that Mr Talbot will have the kindness to pardon the delay, of which he has too much reason to complain, with regard to his Paper on Analytic Crystals, which will be inserted without fail in the next Number of the Philosophical Magazine. <1>

The great cost of Printing in Colours, (notwithstanding Mr Talbot’s very liberal present of the Drawings & hundred impressions,) seemed so far to exceed the very limited means of the Journal, as to induce Mr Taylor to inquire of Mr Hullmandell <2> whether some less costly mode could not be adopted; but, as this does not seem practicable, he will immediately direct that the printing should proceed.

W. H. F. Talbot Esq
