Dear Mr Norton

There are two DiAnconas--Cesare and Alessandro the latter of whom I don't know, the former I do, to my sad cost & my publisher's. Pray [...] Prof [Pauer?]--if he is a good man--may be delivered out of his hand The only Maggi I know is the printseller in Via Tornabuoni. I have inquired at his shop, but he knows nothing of the translation in question.

Perhaps information could be had at Rocca's -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- Via Carretani, and in any event, the Baron Kir Kup, as he is called in a late Italian journal, ought to be able to render a reason for the faith that is in him.

I have not heard any thing of Sir J P Lacaita this winter, [...] Mr Trollope of whom I inquired last evening

Hoar rejected 32 to 24. I really don't know what to make of this & I am still more perplexed at learning that Mr Edmunds--the husband of my niece--was an active opponent of the confirmation.

-------------------------------- Page --------------------------------

My kindest regard to the ladies as well as to yourself

Very truly yours

Geo P MarshC E Norton Esq

P.S. Do you (N B. uniformederiguur) or your ladies wish tickets for the court ball of the 17'? If so, please leave names at the office this week.
