An American scholar residing in Syria has applied to us for the third part of your Assyrian Glossary. He says that the same has appeared. We know only parts I & II printed in the Journal of the R. Asiatic Society. <1> Will you do us the great favour to say whether it has appeared or if not whether or when it will appear.

Believe us to be Yours very respectfully
