My dear Sir

I must write to thank you for your really magnificent present of the twelve copies: I assure you I think I have not the smallest claims for them, after your other liberality.

The M.S. will go on Monday or on furthest Tuesday to Mrss Clowes: I will use your name, in urging them to set it up soon, so as not to run any risk of being too late. I presume Mrss Clowes will keep the wood cuts safe, as one of them in the last number, belongs to Mrs Smith & Elder.

With my sincere thanks | Yours very faithfully | C. Darwin
