To John Murray [28 June 1845]1
Down Bromley Kent
I take the liberty of suggesting that if you send any copies of my Journal to the Periodicals that you would send one to the Gardeners Chronicle; as I have sometimes contributed to it, I think it not unlikely that they would notice it favourably.—2
I shall have the M.S. of the Part II ready in 4 or 5 days.— I presume you will give me a copy of my Journal for myself & shall you think me very unreasonable if I ask you to let me have one dozen copies at prime cost to give to my neighbours & some naturalists who have assisted me.?— Anyhow wd you be so kind as to let me have two copies (one for self & one for Mr Lyell) as soon as out: if ready before Thursday Morning at noon, send them directed to
“C. Darwin Esqre
“care of G. Snow
I am sorry to trouble you with so many notes.
Yours sincerely | C. Darwin
If copies [of part one of Journal of researches] are to be sent to periodicals for review, suggests Gardeners’ Chronicle.
