Dear Sir,

Mr. Payne has been so ill with the rheumatism that he could not sit to do the mechanical part of writing which is the reason that the article of the Talisman has not been sent on to you. He is now better, and the article was nearly finished to send off by this morning's mail. It shall certainly be sent by tomorrow's, and I hope that still it will not be too late.

Yrs. truly
