Dr Sir

I enclose the PO order<2> with respect to the Transactions, <3> all that I have received are left in Scotland, where I generally reside.

But I think the Assistant Secretary of the Society will be able without difficulty to find from the Society’s books, what parts are due to me.

Do you possess a copy of a small work I wrote on English etymologies? <4> If not, I shall have great pleasure in offering you a copy –

Yours truly
H.F. Talbot


1. The ascribed recipient of this letter was traditionally catalogued as F.J. Furnivall, but Doc. No: 05731 indicates that it more likely was John Williams, Assistant Secretary of the Philological Society.

2. No enclosure (presumably the Post Office money order was cashed).

3. Transactions of the Philological Society.

4. WHFT, English Etymologies (London: J. Murray 1847).
