Fox Talbot Esqr


Will you grant me a license for the practise of the Calotype in London and on what terms?

I am Sir Yours very respectfully
H. W. Treffry<1>

Sackville St


1. Although Treffry has yet to be positively identified, in June 1842 the partnership was dissolved of William Treffry, William Henry Treffry, and Samuel Bevan, of Wenlock Basin, City Road, London; engineers, boiler makers, and iron founders. This was the address that Treffry originally wrote from (see Doc. No: 04321). The daguerreotypist might have been a son or brother, or perhaps an intentional inversion of William Henry's name.
