To J. E. Gray 28 March 
Down Farnborough Kent
March 28th —
As you were so kind as to say that you would complete for me, as far as possible, the Zoolog.y of the Erebus & Terror,1 I send a list of what I have. I shd be very glad to have the missing Parts.
As the numbering of the Parts is not consecutive I thought I shd make my deficiencies plainest by giving the pages of the text of that which I have.— Perhaps you will be so good as to have any Parts, (together with Busk,2 whenever you can screw a copy out of the Trustees) put together for me, & I will call for them in about 3 weeks.— Pray forgive this trouble & believe me, Dear Gray | Yours very sincerely | C. Darwin
Has the arrangement of the Cirripedes made any progress? I hope that you will make my work be of such value, as it may possess, by keeping my names, though it may be only temporarily.3 I shd so much like to see all in a Cabinet. I am going soon to arrange Mr Cuming’s for him, or rather to superintend their arrangement.—4
Asks for parts of The zoology of the voyage of H.M.S. Erebus and Terror [1844–75].
Asks about the arrangement of cirripedes at the Museum; hopes JEG will keep CD’s names.
