Dear Sir

I am very glad to learn that you are willing to aid in promoting the objects of the Philol. Society. Wotton unfortunately, has been assigned to an English collaborator. I would propose the Morte d'Arthur, Southey's reprint, including the preliminary matter and notes. This I presume is not new to you, but it contains many important forms and words, and -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- if you should read it, I beg you will note the few cases in which the old distinction between yea & yes, nay and no, is disregarded.

The Dictionary article in the World is necessarily incomplete, for want of space. I have written another, for the Xtian Review, a Baptist Quarterly published by Sheldon & Co N.Y. It is now in type, & will appear July 1'. The two are complementary to each other, the article in the Review going fully into several points barely touched -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- upon--etymology, for instance, form of volume, and arrangement of matter--in that in the World.

I feel the profoundest interest in the Italian question, which I regard as the most important one which has arisen in my time. I am now contributing to the World and shall frequently discuss this matter, though not under my own name, in its columns.

Thanking you for your favorable opinion -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- of my labors.

I am, sir,

very respectfully yours

Geo P MarshChas E Norton Esq
