From Asa Gray 21 July 1862
21. July 1862.
My Dear Darwin
The enclosed I trust will please your boy,—who I hope is now well, and his Father also.1
Since my last, in the P.S. to which I hastily acknowledged yours of July 1,2 I have received the casts of cuts of Orchis.3 Very many thanks, I shall use them—to illustrate my 1st part of notice of your book.4 I have received invoice from Trübner & Co for 6 copies—at £3.3. What is the retail price of your book? Is it not half a guinea?5 It would be wrong you should pay for these copies,—since I suppose Murray would supply you at half the price.
No time to write now.— No more Orchid-matter has come to hand.
Ever Yours Cordially | Asa Gray.
