To Smith, Elder & Co. 21 January 
Down Bromley | Kent
I am obliged for your account, which I will settle, the first time I call.—
I pretty well satisfied with sale of Coral Volume, for I feel certain, every now & then copies will go off for many years to come—but whether quick enough to pay the 60£ with its interest, I am sure I do not know—1 When we can get the Zoology finished, the sale of that I hope, will help matters.
Do you know Editor of the Athenæum;2 I am surprised they have not noticed the Coral Volume.—
Please to send Dr A. Smiths number3 to care of E. Darwins, 43 Grt. Marlborough St.
Mr Hinds address is
29 Alfred Place
Yours very faithfully | C. Darwin
