To Richard Kippist1 13 February [1861?]2
… “I will send tonight by our Carrier3 all the Books in Hand in an old Portmanteau (which please return) so … they will come safely.4
With sincere thanks for your vy. kind assistance. | C. Darwin”
“I suppose De Blainville’s Osteographie does not include Rabbits or Hares, as I much wish to see such if it were ever published.”5
Gives notice of returning books by a carrier and thanks for assistance.
Asks whether Henri Marie Ducrotay de Blainville’s Ostéographie (1839–64) includes rabbits or hares.
