My dear Sir

I do not think there would be any real difficulty about your presenting a printed paper for our Transactions.

Generally, and as a rule, it is best that such papers should come before the Committee of papers in MS. but, practically, I am the Committee of Papers and I should not call this Committee together, except in some case where I was in doubt myself –

I can quite understand the inconvenience of being away from your books of reference & whenever a paper has been delayed in its printing for several months –

There is no absolute rule in the RSL about printing papers & ever since I have been Honry Secry, this matter has been left, rightly or wrongly almost entirely to my own judgement –

My Carthaginian Inscriptions <2> are finished, and only await the order of the Trustees for the circulation of the Book. I have put down your name as the recipient of one copy which the Trustees have assented

I am Ever sincerely yours
W. S. W. Vaux

H Fox Talbot Esq
