Dear Talbot.

I have just returned from Dover, & my fist act has been to repay to your account at Hammersley’s <1> the £20 you gave me to purchase your books in Germany, deducting £1 . 10 . 0 for two of them which I bought at Dresden, and which are coming along with some for myself: I will send them to you as soon as they arrive. – I was enabled to procure all the rest at Hamburg, and they will be forwarded to you by Black, Young & Young, to whom I have spoken today about it. I explained to you in a former note why I had not paid for them.<2> I am going to Cambridge tomorrow.

Yrs ever
T. Thorp
