From James Sowerby   24 April 1820

2 Mead Place, Lambeth

24 April 1820

My dear Sir,

I return your fossils. I hope they will come safely. Be so good as to make my best remembrances to Prof. Sedgwick and do me the favour to return the Amm. Sedgwickii with many thanks. I suppose you attended Prof. Clark’s lecture on Satr y or know that I lent him some Mot. c Iron to show his pupils. I beg to trouble with the enclosed letter for him or rather small parcell, and also for Prof. Sedgwick – any help in either of my catalogues or regarding fossils &c &c will be thankfully rec. d by dear Sir.

Yours very faithfully | J. Sowerby

Isle of Man
