Tuesday Aug. 1.

Dear Sir

Did you receive a note from me about a fortnight ago, concerning Mr Collen? <2>

Yours very truly
H.F. Talbot

[pencil note on verso, in an unknown hand:]
Inventor of Photogenic Drawing


1. No WHFT letter from this time frame has been traced. However, his relationship with Collen had become increasingly strained and he had been in correspondence with his lawyer over this [See, for example Doc. No: 04814].

2. Henry Collen (1800-1879), miniature painter, calotypist & spiritualist, London; he was the first calotypist licensed by Talbot.
