My dear Mr Wright
I received this morning a very big book in 2 vols. from author, “Études sur les Facultés mentales des Animaux par J. C. Houzeau—membre de l’Acad. Belgique”— (A Travelling naturalist— “Paris Hachette & Co. 1872.”—2 This would be probably worth your notice.— I hope that you will enjoy the rest of your tour.— I have been heartily glad to make your personal acquaintance—3
In Haste | Yours very sincerely | Ch. Darwin
