(Reymann's Kreis-Karten von Deutschland, No 76 (the one that has Cüstrin in it),1—at Messrs Wms & Norgate's, Henrietta Street, Covent Garden?—

Dear Sir,—would you call some morning (as above) and inquire about “No 76": it will cost 1/6 if there (whh is not very likely); if not there,—I had better know the fact soon than late.

Cüstrin I intend for a woodcut, if it will do.2— You can let me know, any day, how you speed;—especially, produce the map if you have got it!— — These Kreis-Karten (“Country Charts”) are excellt military maps, complete in every detail: I have a 3 or 4 score of them here; and often wish I had certain more;—some 500 will be the whole lot; but it is still only in progress.

You wanted work,—and are like to get it!

Yours sincerely /

T. Carlyle
