2pp., 12mo. 34 lines. Fair, on lightly-aged and creased paper. It has 'just flashed across' his mind that he neglected to answer the question in Wright's letter about the Syriac bible. 'We have no use for the Mod. Syr. Bib. in these parts & so do not keep it at hand.' He gives names of individuals to contact on the question, and discusses how copies could be procured. A postscript reads: 'What is the prospect for the completion of Lanes Lex. I have to the end of S - but since Lane died [Edward William Lane died in 1876] it seems as if most words were put off to the Supplement!!'. N° de ref. de la librería 12470
