Dear Mr Fox Talbot,

Many thanks to you for your copies of the papers on the Esarhaddon & Khammurabi inscriptions.

I will make enquiry about the Photographs & I will ask Mr Birch to request a set may be forwarded to you I do not suppose that any difficulty will be made about this

I do not know any thing of Mr Sayce and he is not employed in the Museum. The more labourers in the Assyrian Vineyard the better.

Every sincerely yours
W.S.W Vaux

H Fox Tabot Esqr
I have just seen Mr Birch and he says that if you will write a letter to Mr Panizzi & make a personal application, he has no doubt that you will obtain the Photographs You had better state that they have been given to Rawlinson & Oppert &, I think, to Norris
