To Richard Owen [c. December 1837]1
My dear Owen.
I leave you the remaining proofs of yr descript of Toxodon, 2 and a revise of first part.— Will you just read quickly over my part.3 I hope there are no errata left.—
Will you inform me whether you will want a second revise of your first part. You will see, I have made plenty of remarks hap-hazard, right or wrong they cannot do harm.—
Have you looked at D’Orbigny’s travels?4 If not, I see you mis-understood a little what I mentioned; I have written it below, & I believe correctly.—
Yours very truly | Charles Darwin
I send the duplicate proof which you had better keep.—
Sends remaining proofs of RO’s description of Toxodon [Fossil Mammalia] and a revise of first part. Will Owen want a second revise? CD has made "plenty of remarks".
