My dear Sir
I am sorry to have caused you trouble.— The text & the Plates was sentby mistake, & I shd be glad of its return, as one of my sons wishes to keepthe Plates, which,, however, wd be of very little use to the Soc, as they arechiefly a curiosity in the art of engraving.— Kindly give volume specifiedto Royal Soc.—f2
My dear sir | Yours sincerely | Ch. Darwin
