Letter from Richard Clarke to Dr Jolowiez

Scope and Content

Letter from Richard Clarke, Secretary, to Dr Jolowiez to thank for his letters of 24 April and 4 May and apologise for the delay in replying as the Council was 'not meeting' . His request for help in publishing some documents cannot be agreed to as the Society does not have the funds. However the work, 'Polyglot of Oriental Poetry', was laid before a meeting, stamped, but then returned to sender when it had been remarked that if it had to be returned it would not have been stamped. Jolowiez had also sent copies of his lectures, 'The first Epistle of the Baruch' and 'On the Correction of the text of the Hebrew Scriptures', the first had been read in 1854 at a meeting of Syro-Egyptian Society.
