## July 14th

Sir

I wrote a note to you about a week since, asking whether you supplied Entomological Store Boxes, (of shape of back-gammon Board) lined on both sides with good cork & papered.

I wish for one (or probably more) of large size, but I must know prices & dimensions.— Please to answer this note. My former one was addressed to Mr Burch; but I see on Labels of articles purchased at your place, two names, so I may have addressed my former note wrongly.

Sir | Your obed | Charles Darwin

I have one Box 16 x 12$\frac{1}{4}$ & 4 inches deep; but I think rather larger would be better. The outside to be plain deal.— No lock & key.
