To John Murray 4 December 
Ilkley Wells ⇒ Any future letter to be addressed “Down Bromley Kent”
My dear Sir
I am very much obliged for your note & all the trouble you have so kindly taken about French Edition.—1 I have written to Mad. Belloc.2
I return papers signed & witnessed.
I quite agree to all you say. & do not care for extra copies of Kingsley’s sentence.3
I am very glad of 3000 copies, but you must not run risk for my sake. I will not delay Printers.— I write briefly to save your time.—
Yours truly obliged | C. Darwin
