Dr. Kuhlmann reports that on receiving Ruland's letter he took steps to hasten Mr Bingham's arrival in Lille. The photographer is now installed in the museum, and Kuhlmann will ensure he has all the facilities he requires. Dr. Kuhlmann is gratified to hear that the Prince Consort has authorised further trials of silicatisation and silicious paint, and offers to send specimens of the result of his own practical studies.
