Trinity Lodge Oct. 3. 1860

Dear Talbot

I am very glad that you are going to bring your son here this Term. If his health allows it, he will do better than he could do by coming at any other time.

I am especially glad that you are coming yourself. Lady Affleck and I hope that you will take up your abode at the Lodge while you are here. It will be a pleasure to both of us. Pray bring your photographs of the eclipse.

I sent yesterday to your Cumberland address a letter which is now of no use.

Yours very truly
W Whewell

H. Fox Talbot Esqr
