Dear Sir, -

I have just returned I beg to acknowledge your letter about the "Carlyle"[4] and am quite willing and pleased to have it reproduced in your journal (of which by the way the copy you say that you sent me never reached me).

I must beg however that you will kindly undertake to send me the proof of the reproduction in time for consideration or correction before its appearance in the magazine.

I am dear Sir
Very faithfully yours
