To Richard Kippist 27 [February or March 1861?]1
My dear Sir
I will send Carrier2 for Books tomorrow Thursday Morning & he shall pay 6s but please give a slip as receipt, for I do not like trusting Carriers.—
If you have in Library Agricolas Latin Work on Agriculture (or any Translation)3 please send it.—
If you have not Agricola please send in lieu (for he quotes Agricola) ‘Aldrovandi de Quadrupedibus digitatis 1637.’—4
Have you Castelnau voyage in S. America;5 I want to see the Historical part, not the pure Zoological part.
Lastly (God forgive me) if at present in, please send Brown-Sequard’s Journal de Phys: Vol. 2.6 but I know Mr Sclater7 had it out.—
Yours sincerely | C. Darwin
