13 Decr 1867

My dear Sir

You may be thinking that I shd. have returned Sr. Delpino’s two pamphlets ere now.—1 I have written a review or notice of both, but keep the pamphlets themselves until I see my MSS in type in case of further reference being needed   And I find that I will not have space for them in my first number— I shall get them into the second—so unless I hear that you wish the pamphlets sooner I shall retain them until they have served their purpose—2

Believe me | Yours sincerely | Andw. Murray


CD had sent two papers by Federico Delpino (Delpino 1867a and 1867b) for review in the Journal of Travel and Natural History, which had been launched by Murray (see letter from Andrew Murray, 16 September 1867 and n. 2).
The review was published in the third number of the journal (Murray 1868).


Will return Federico Delpino’s two pamphlets soon.
