To J. J. Moulinié 12 July 1
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
My dear Sir
I thank you cordially for the extremely kind manner in which you say you are willing to introduce some corrections & additions. I think I told you I shd. not print till early in the autumn.2 I will send you clean proofs, as they are printed off.
In present state of France perhaps some delay may be adviseable.— I foresee some difficulty about my chief additions, which in the English edition follows the VI Chapter & contains some pages taken out of Chapt IV.—3 When the time comes I will get you kindly to consider what had better be done.
With very many thanks, In Haste | Yours sincerely | Ch. Darwin
