My Dear Sir
I have received your obliging note & reflecting upon the large & very important additions wch you have made in this Edition of your work on Species, wch I had observed myself in the proof sheets I propose to print 1500, instead of 1000 copies—2 Counting on your assent.
You shall have 18 copies of the new Edn for yourself3 I remain | My Dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | John Murray
Ch Darwin Esq
On reflection, in view of the extensive additions CD has made to Origin, has decided to print 1500 copies [of 4th ed.].
