From John Murray 10 October 1
50, Albemarle St. | W.
Dear Mr Darwin
I enclose you Mr Dallas reply respecting your Index—wch reads satisfactorily—so I hope no delay will arise from that quarter.2
It is odd that the passage to wch I referred you in your proofs—now eludes my search but it occurs very near to the note, wch you have very properly veiled in Latin.3
Mr Clowes has kept me waiting for his estimate of the cost of Electrotypes— I can now inform you that I will supply the set of 62 cuts for £14" They will cost £7" & the surplus will go to diminish our expenses for Illustrations4
You shall have 4 sets of the sheets as fast as they are worked off— I hope you have arranged to receive something handsome from the Americans—in return for this advantage, wch I have given over to you with the desire that you shd benefit. The Yankee publisher cannot fail to gain.5 I have also a request from Holland for a set for a Dutch Translation—6 What do you say to this?
I remain My Dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | John Murray
Charles Darwin Esq
Cannot find the [indelicate] passage he referred to in last letter.
