My dear Sir
I suppose the enclosed letter is correct & that you wish us to supply a set of the Electrotypes of the work on Orchids, at as reasonable a price as we can?
Yours faithfully | Rob

- f1 6719.f1The enclosure has not been found. John Murray published CD's Orchids in 1862. No other English-language edition was published until 1877. The letter probably concerns the projected French translation of Orchids (see letter from R. F. Cooke, 22 February 1869).
