To Mary Elizabeth Lyell [19? October 1866]1
My dear Lady Lyell
I should be delighted & honoured by Mrs Somerville’s using any of the diagrams in my Orchid book.2 But it is more Mr Murray’s affair than mine.3 If this note were shewn to him I have no doubt he would give permission & do what is necessary.
Pray believe me yours sincerely | Ch. Darwin
Mary Somerville may use diagrams from Orchids [in her Molecular and microscopic science (1869)], but permission should be obtained from John Murray.
