To P. L. Sclater 5 December 1870
Down. | Beckenham | Kent. S.E.
Dec 5th 1870
My dear Mr Sclater,
I send by this post 3 sheets, & tomorrow I will send another. This, with the exception of about of a sheet, completes the part on birds, & I sincerely congratulate you and thank you for your labour will then be completed.1 Some of the sheets are terribly corrected, but they are chiefly parts in which few names are included. I am so tired with my work that I shall leave this place before post time on Thursday the 8th, & shall stay at “6 Queen Anne Street” for a week.2 I will call some early day to see you.
Yours very truly obliged | Ch. Darwin
Is sending by this post three sheets and will send another tomorrow thus almost completing the part on birds. His congratulations and thanks for PLS’s labours with them.
