H. F. Talbot Esqre

Lacock Abbey


Annexed I beg to hand you an account of last week’s Cash transactions. This morning I received your Letter of the 14, and perfectly agree with you respecting Brooks, but there is no occasion to write him, when once we have got back the Picture which will be this afternoon or tomorrow morning –

You do not say anything in your Letter about a Patent for France –

David Harrison appears to have his time fully occupied, experimenting with your Battery: this prevents him fulfilling the orders we get for Sun Pictures, as he cannot possibly attend to both at the same time – Mr Coxwell who has had from 15 to 20 Guineas worth of Views taken for him, [is] constantly complaining of the delay on our part in sending him the Positives of his negatives –

I remain Yours truly
Tobias S. Telfer –

P. T. O.

Henneman has just given me the enclosed Letter for you, which he omitted to send before – Henneman has seen the Negatives and there are about 36 Large @ 5/- and the same number of small negatives @ 2/6 – which he thinks are all that are worth keeping they amount to about 12£ all together –
