To John Edward Gray [January 1851]1
My dear Gray
I will be here tomorrow morning at 10 oclock,2 & as I have very much to do will you kindly oblige me by having Spengler on Cirripedia3 (which you once showed me) ready for me.— Also I want to look at the rest of the sessile Cirripedia in the Collection,4 for praise be to Heaven, I have finished Balanus.5 And Lastly could I see Mr Cocks’ collection?—6
Forgive this trouble | yours
Is coming tomorrow to see Lorenz Spengler on cirripedes [Auserlesne Schnecken, Muscheln und andre Schaalthiere (1758)] and the remaining sessile cirripedes in the collection. Has finished Balanus.
