Darwin, C. R. to Darwin, W. E.

9 Jan [1872]


Thanks WED for checking through the proofs of a new [6th] edition of Origin.


Jan. 9th

My dear William

I received this morning the last proof, & I must thank you cordiallyfor all the labour & anxiety, which you have saved & for all grindingwork which you have yourself undergone.—f1In one page a whole line had got misplaced, which I see hadpuzzled you & at first confounded me.—

I shall not want the Preface, Index &c looked over by you, sothat your work is finally done.—

I am so glad we shall see you on Sunday.

Yours affectionately | C. Darwin

Postmark: JA 9 72
