Dear Mr Darwin
I enclose you Mr Dallas reply respecting your Index—wchreads satisfactorily—so I hope no delay will arise from that quarter.f2
It is odd that the passage to wch I referred you in your proofs—noweludes my search but it occurs very near to the note, wch you havevery properly veiled in Latin.f3
Mr Clowes has kept me waiting for his estimate of the cost ofElectrotypes— I can now inform you that I will supply the set of62 cuts for £14″ They will cost £7″ & the surplus will go todiminish our expenses for Illustrationsf4
You shall have 4 sets of the sheets as fast as they are worked off—I hope you have arranged to receive something handsome from theAmericans—in return for this advantage, wch I have given over to youwith the desire that you shd benefit. The Yankee publisher cannot failto gain.f5 I have also a request from Holland for a set for a DutchTranslation—f6 What do you say to this?
I remain My Dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | John Murray
