Dysart, North Britain
20th. May 1842.

I take the liberty of writing you to ask a favor. I have seen in the possession of a gentleman, in Edinburgh, a small Bronze Medal by Goetze, having a likeness of you on the one side, and a fanciful device on the other. I am very anxious to possess a copy of this Medal, but I do not know how or where it may be procured. I will therefore take it very kind if you will have the goodness to send me one, or let me know how it may be obtained. I shall willingly pay the expense, whatever it may amount to.

I am, Sir,

Yours mo: respectfully
W. A. Pettigrew
