Writes to report progress on MS of second part [of Journal of researches].
Down Bromley Kent
I send a line to report progress.— For the two last posts I have received no proof sheets: before they came regularly & I returned them as regularly within 12 hours: there have been so few corrections, that I have not had occasion to see any revise.—
I have got through the most difficult part of the M.S. of the next number
& shall have it all ready by 4
Believe me dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | C. Darwin
P.S. | Should you object to an advertisement of the ‘Zoology
& Geology of the Beagles Voyage (& of course of nothing else), being
printed at M
- f1 877.f1The advertisement arrived too late to be included in the first number of the three-part issue (see letter to John Murray, [26 June 1845]). However, such an advertisement does appear on p. 520 of the second issue, which is in book form (Freeman 1977, p. 36).
