To Asa Gray   19 March [1877]1

Down

March 19th.

My dear Gray

I daresay the enclosed will do for sticking up with the sheets to make the volume complete.— I feel sure that Murray cd not send a hot-pressed copy without breaking up a set—2

We thank you & Mrs. Gray for your kind sympathy.— It was a most dreadful blow, but poor dear Frank sticks to his work like a man, & this is the sole alleviation possible.—3

Yours affectionately | C. Darwin
