I wish you would find out - perhaps from Dunthorne or Dowdeswell - or better perhaps Browne (F A S) what
is the proper a proof of the "Forge" - the large drypoint - ought to be worth -
It is of course of the greatest rarity - and I could not easily find out for myself -
Have they given thirty or forty [gns?] - Is it worth as much or more than the "Jo"? -
Write us soon -
