(Recd. at OSO June 22nd 1839)
I have arrived in Galway at last, where I intend to finish. I left Mr. Wakeman at Ballynahinch to sketch some old churches, castles &c. As soon as he joins me we shall sail over to the Aran islands, which will afford a rich mine of ancient remains.
I shall now put my notes about Connamara into some shape, being now fixed in a quiet study with plenty of most valuable books.
How is O'Conor getting on in Carlow? The sooner the books of the County of Kilkenny are prepared for me the better.
