    Summary Add

  • +

    Book [Facts and arguments for Darwin] is being bound; it is probably too late to alter lettering.


50A, Albemarle Street, London, W.

March 12 1869

My dear Sir

The binder played me false yesterday & we have only received a supply of copies this afternoon & we have now sent you to Orpington Station, 9 copies—3 to Mr Dallas—& 1 to Spence Bate.

The copies to Reviews go out also this day. I have sent a few more, than the 7 you named. It is too late I fear to alter the lettering, but I wrote to the binder to do so, if in time.

Yours faithfully | Robt. Cooke

C. Darwin Esq
