Letter from Horace Hayman Wilson

Scope and Content

Letter from Horace Hayman Wilson to My Dear Sir (unknown) enquiring about being able to purchase a copy of the Medal of Mehemet Ali for the East India House Museum. (The medal was produced by the Numismatic Society in honour of Mehemet Ali in 1841/2). The letter also refers to the Royal Asiatic Society not holding any meetings for some months and therefore Wilson will be unable to sign [Baghorn's certificate] for some time. Handwritten, dated 27 August [1842].
