Dear Sir

I am much obliged for your note & am particularly pleased to hear that Dr Dub is going to publish with you, as I felt doubtful whether his work wd interfere with Prof. V. Carus' translation

I shd be very much obliged for Prof Jaeger's brochure; if sent by post please to address it as above as I shall not return to my home at Down until the end of July.

Dear Sir | yours faithfully | Ch. Darwin

P.S. I send yesterday the new English ed. of the Origin to Prof. Carus—
