To R. F. Cooke 23 [February 1869]1
6. Queen Anne St
Tuesday 23d. night.
My dear Sir
After much hesitation I will fix for 1000 copies, though I fear that it is foolish.—2
With respect to price I will leave it your kind decision what is best: I have paid for woodcuts & translation 20£.— Nevertheless I shd think that 6s ought to be the utmost price.—3
I enclose list of (7) copies for Reviews, & (12) for presentation to friends, most of which I will forward as they have to go abroad.— Kindly inform me by letter when the 8 copies are sent to Down.—
Dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | Ch. Darwin
