My dear Sir

You will have received a copy by Saturday post of the new edition of the Origin.1

I merely write a line to say all your presentation copies have been sent out & that we shall publish the work this week.

We sent by yr directions a set of Electros in Jany last, to Bologna. Are we to make any charge for it & if so to whom?2 At present we have only a memorandum in our books of their being sent.

Yours faithfully | Robt. Cooke

Charles Darwin Esq
