From R. F. Cooke   18 August 1871

RC is sure Murray would not object to printing the pamphlet [C. Wright’s Darwinism: being an examination of Mr. St. G. J. Mivart’s "Genesis of species"].

After a lull in sales of Descent, a fresh demand warrants keeping type set up. Has CD seen the review of Descent in the Guardian?

  • r .  next. I am now working out, an estimate for it, to see what it can be sold for & how many must be printed to make it pay. If I can manage it I will go again to Edwards & Kidd, in the hope of seeing one of the principals, & obtain more information, as I imagine there is the expense of the negatives , extra. Yours faithfully | Rob t . Cooke The “Times” has not injured the sale, it is going on nicely. C.  Darwin
