From John Murray 22 September 1
50A, Albemarle St. | W.
My Dear Sir
I am glad to tell you that the blame I had taken on me for the non-delivery of Mr Walshs copy is not due to me. After assuring myself that Baillière could not despatch it it was placed in the hands of Mr Sampson Low, whose note enclosed will explain its subsequent fortunes as far as New York2
I hope Mr Walsh has received it before this— at any rate I will not rest until it reaches him
Yours very faithfully | John Murray
Chas Darwin Esq
Lost copy of Variation sent to B. D. Walsh has been traced as far as New York.
