                       Settrington Rectory York, May 1879
My dear Cox
There are only two unsolved problems in the History of “Letters, and I have ventured a shot at both. Your studies in Greek History will give special weight to your opinion as to the adequacy of my explanation of the origin of the Runes, which as the Oghams every one connected with Ireland is bound to take interest in the earliest records and the earliest fragments of the history of that country.
If I am successful I will have removed the Tuatha de Danans from the realm of legend to the region of History.
Macmillan will send you a copy of the book in a day or two, and I shall be much gratified if I find my argument succeed in convincing you.
Do try to come to see us this summer.
        Believe me
        Yours very truly
        Isaac Taylor
