My dear Sir
The Engravers inform me that they have delivered the blocks to Mr Murray, and have been paid—1 Mr Wells posted me the enclosed—2 I hardly know whether I should have directed him to call or forward it to Mr Murray, or whether it requires your signature to be paid
I have had some pleasant correspondence with Prof Newton respecting an original dodo picture I discovered—3 He also seems to have discovered that varieties and variation are not altogether beneath the notice of naturalists.
I hope your work will be out before very long. I am very anxious to read it— I think in my marginal
The blocks [for Variation] have been forwarded to Murray.
WBT has been corresponding with Prof. Newton.
