Monday Morn.

My dear Owen.

Have you any M.S. ready for the Printers.— I write to put you in mind that to day is the 24th— I trust that you will have all ready by the end of 1st week in March, otherwise I I am sure we shall be in a hurry.—

Will you have the kindness to see that Mr Scharf has finished the plates & beg him to inform me directly whether you have seen proofs of all, so that I may see about their printing off.—

Believe me | Most truly Yours | Chas. Darwin
