From C.-F. Reinwald   26 September 1872

Paris. 15 Rue du Sts Pères

26 Sept. 1872

Dear Sir

We duely received your kind letter of Sept. 18th., as well as another letter adressed to Col. Moulinié, to be printed at the beginning of our translation of the Origin of Species.1 We return with book post the heliotype Plates of your new work “on the Expression of the Emotions”, as Mess Murray had the kindness to send another set of it.2

Mess Murray accepted in the same time our proposal for supplying us with 500 copies of the Heliotype Plates and the wood-cuts, so that we could begin translating if we had in hands the sheets already printed. We ask to-day Mess Murray to send them at an early conveniance.

It is important to find now a good and capable translator, as M Moulinié is to ill to be thought of.—3 We will not make a choice without your consent.

We remain dear Sir | yours’ most obediently | C Reinwald & Co
