East India House
26 Augt 1843
My Dear Sir.
It is a long time since I had occasion to recall myself to your recollection but I am glad to find from my relation Mr Young that you have not forgotten me. I am much indebted to you for the attention you were so good as to show him by which he felt himself both flattered & gratified.
Will you allow me now to introduce to you Mr Edwin Guest, who is Secretary to the London Philological Society & well versed  in the old English language & literature & I believe a German Scholar. He is passing through Bonn & will be much gratified by any opportunity of paying his respects to you.
I have not done anything lately worthy of your notice – my friend Prof. Johnson of the East India Company’s college of Haileybury has been lately engaged in preparing a few class books for that institution with which you are probably acquainted  The last is a new edition of the Megha Duta a few copies of which being at my disposal I beg your acceptance of one as a trifling mark of the continued respect & esteem of
Yours very sincerely
To Professor A. W. von Schlegel
