To James Crichton-Browne 26 March 1
My dear Sir
I have just despatched one of your photographs of insane woman with wonderfully bristling hair to be engraved.2 I cannot remember whether I stated that I should like to have some engraved.3 I suppose there can be no objection. I see in newspapers that photographers sometimes prosecute people for taking their photographs. If I do not hear, I will assume I may have the photograph engraved. I shall be anxious to see the other photographs which you said you would lend me for inspection4 I have been making immense use almost every day of your MS.5 The book ought to be called by Darwin & Browne?6
Yours very sincerely | C. Darwin.
Do not, I beg you, if well enough, forget to tell me sometime about the pupils of eyes under rage and terror.7
Has sent photographs of insane woman to be engraved. Assumes JC-B has no objection.
Is making immense use of JC-B’s MS. The book ought to be described as "by Darwin & Browne".
