To Richard Owen 28 [December 1837]1
As my servant is passing your way, I send a perfect revise of Toxodon. I have read it over, & marked the very few errata which caught my eye, which may help you in your final revision.—
I hope with all my heart you will return quite comfortable, and you must not work so hard, as usual, for some time.—
Yours most truly | Chas. Darwin.
36 Grt Marlbro’ St.—
NB. I altered the 12,000. toises into 12,00 toises2 which I suspect is right, though it did not occur to me, when I first read it over.— Perhaps you had better just refer to Cuvier—3
Sends perfect revise of "Toxodon" [Fossil Mammalia] which he has read and marked.
