5 April 1850

My dear Sir,

I was very glad to see that your fellow townsmen had recognized your exertions in the handsome manner they did – & not the less pleased by observing that the expression was not unusual – I send you 2 copies that you may forward one to the party to whom I am indebted for a portion of the plan of keeping unusual account of certain parish matters which I might not otherwise have thought of – you were so good as to send me his statement 2 years ago – I shall not have the items before Monday or Tuesday but will send them when I get them

Yours faithfully & truly

J. S. Henslow
