My Dear Mr Murray


Would it be
possible to print
my little analysis
of the Sichuana
language for private
use with a margin
for future corrections
in a week from
this time? And





if so at what cost?
It would be so convenient
for my
studies that I beg
leave to trouble
you with the
question


Will you be
kind enough to
get 3 Nautical
Almanacks for
me . viz — 1858-9-60
Also the very latest




90


edition of Thomson's
Tables — Linear and
Lunary. I think it
was published within
the last few years.
The old one I have
already.


I may say
that you have
kindly put by
the Analysis in
your drawer if
you think right
to glance at its size





And in case I forget
when with you
I would ask you
to leave out my
observation book
as I wish to take
it to the Cape.


I shall call
tomorrow — perhaps
today but am
going up to
Wandsworth

I am &c

David Livingstone


Dr L. found the Essay in his own possession
& the Observations he had given to Arrowsmith
