Will order the first set of casts from Murray.
Thanks CD for a book for his wife from the Royal Society Library.
His brother [Alexander] is delighted at being referred to in CD’s work [Descent 1: 205].

I received to day from the Library of the R. Soc. the book mywife wanted and we are both very thankfull for Your kindness.f2 Asthe price charged by Murray for the first set of casts was veryreasonable I think it would be better simply to order him a set andhe will charge for it no doubt about the same price as he did for the“Domesticated Animals”.—f3 My brother will be certainly delightedby Your mentioning his investigation in Your book, at all event I’llwrite him today, perhaps he will have something more to communicateto You.f4 I ascertained that Dr. Carpenter will dredge between Maltaand Gibraltarf5
