To G. R. Gray [6 December 1838]1
My dear Sir
I send you a few more pages of the Proofs, which if you will have the kindness to look over, will be all that I shall put in the next number; & a third number must be a fat one to make up for the two first being rather thin.— Will you see whether the latin adverbs are properly accented, for I know no more than the Man in the Moon, how they should be.—
Ever yours | C. Darwin 36 Great Marlbro’ St
Sends proofs [of Birds, no. 2]. Asks GRG to check Latin accents.
