My dear Mr Sclater,
I send by this post 3 sheets, & tomorrow I will send another. This, with theexception of about 34 of a sheet, completes the part on birds, & I sincerelycongratulate you and thank you for your labour will then be completed.f1Some of the sheets are terribly corrected, but they are chiefly parts in whichfew names are included. I am so tired with my work that I shall leave thisplace before post time on Thursday the 8th, & shall stay at “6 Queen AnneStreet” for a week.f2 I will call some early day to see you.
Yours very truly obliged | Ch. Darwin
