Excerpt from The Letters and Inscriptions of Hammurabi, King of Babylon, King of Babylon, About B. C. 2200, Vol. 3: To Which Are Added a Series of Letters of Other Kings of the First Dynasty of Babylon; The Original Babylonian Texts, Edited From Tables in the British Museum, With English Translations, Summaries of Contents, Etc;; English Translations, Etc In the first volume of this work the hope was expressed that the transliterations and translations of the texts printed therein would be issued at no remote date, and had the scope of the work been kept within the limits originally contemplated these would have seen the light without any undue delay. But, in the course of my examination of the tablets in the British Museum belonging to the period of the reign of Hammurabi, I found, after the publication of my first volume, a number of documents which were of prime importance for the history of the kings of the First Dynasty of Babylon. Among these may be specially mentioned a duplicate of the Semitic inscription of Samsu-iluna, a duplicate of the Sumerian inscription of the same king, and a text similar to that found on the famous "Chronicle of the Kings of the First Dynasty," and a number of unpublished letters of Hammurabi, Samsu-iluna, and Abesu'.
