Feby 23 1869

My dear Sir

I think the expense of Fritz Muller, will be about £86 for 750 Copies—or less than £10 extra for 1000. I will order a stoutish paper & as the book will be 160 pages we might put 5/ or 6/-- on it & then there would be a profit.

Yours faithfully | Robt. Cooke

C. Darwin Esq
