To John Washington 14 October 
12 Upper Gower St
I return you the proof sheets, & have no observations to make on the geology, contained therein.— When I come to describe the Cordillera of Chile, this paper will be of considerable use to me.1 Very many thanks for the Bib. des Voyages;2 you have an excellent memory for your friends.—
If you can assist me to the Annales Maritims (1829 Part II, p 283) for Tromelins Voyage, you will have helped me in every point, which I wanted.3 Is it not a proper book for the Soc. to purchase?
With many thanks | Believe me | Yours very truly | Chas Darwin
I hope to pay you a visit in the course of a few days
Returns proof-sheets of an article he has reviewed for the Journal of the Royal Geographical Society. He will find it useful when he comes to describe the Cordilleras of Chile.
