My dear Sir

I distinctly told Prof. Canestrini that you wd. charge 10£ for the stereotypes, as you had done for other foreign editions.— You had better write direct to him—or to his publisher.— I thought that you had been paid long ago.—

Thanks for the copy received of Origin & for the copies despatched abroad & elsewhere.— Pray do not forget my suggestion of a copy for Review to ``Scientific Opinion''

My dear Sir | Yours sincerely | Ch. Darwin
