Dated London, April 4, 1883. To Prof. Friedrich Max Muller, declaring himself undeserving of the privilege of adding his name to a paper honoring Egyptologist Karl Richard Lepsius, though he will do so if Max Muller insists. He recommends his friend, Rev. Joseph Estlin Carpenter, "who is versed in Aegyptic studies and in all that is cognate to them....He is Prof. of Ecclesiastical History & Comparative Theology and of Hebrew Language and Literature in Manchester New College, London." Max Muller was a German philologist and Orientalist, as was Lepsius. Carpenter would write a biography of Martineau in 1905. One sheet folded to make four pages, three are used. Folded as though for mailing. Minor staining, a Fine letter.
