Letter from Henry Thomas Colebrooke to Nathaniel Wallich, 30 March 1824

Scope and Content

Letter from Henry Thomas Colebrooke to Nathaniel Wallich to ask Wallich whether he would like the earlier volumes of the Geological Transactions to complete his set as they are available at modest terms. Colebrooke and Mr Lambert have had an interview to request an assistant for Wallich but, as yet, do not know the outcome. The specimens that Wallich sent are still undistributed and therefore Colebrooke suggests that Wallich apportions them to men of science in future. In a postscript Colebrooke mentions that Richardson is still sending publications to Wallich. Handwritten, dated 30 March 1824, received 29 September 1824.
