Feby. 22 1869

My dear Sir

There will be no objection to the French Transn, or difficulty about the woodcuts to the Orchids.1

They shall be supplied at or near cost price.

I have not yet received the necessary information about “Fritz Muller” but I will not fail to let you know the moment I do.2

Yours faithfully | Robt. Cooke

Charles Darwin Esq

See letter to R. F. Cooke, [22 February 1869] and n. 2.
Cooke refers to the English translation of Fritz Müller’s Für Darwin (F. Müller 1864a; Dallas trans. 1869). See letter from R. F. Cooke, 23 February 1869.
CD’s annotations appear to be notes relating to expenses for Dallas trans. 1869 (see letter from R. F. Cooke, 23 February 1869).


There will be no objection to the French translation or difficulty about woodcuts of Orchids.

Has not yet received the information about Müller’s Facts and arguments for Darwin.
