From R. F. Cooke   12 March 1869

50A, Albemarle Street, London, W.

March 12 1869

My dear Sir

The binder played me false yesterday & we have only received a supply of copies this afternoon & we have now sent you to Orpington Station, 9 copies—3 to Mr Dallas—& 1 to Spence Bate.1

The copies to Reviews go out also this day.2 I have sent a few more, than the 7 you named. It is too late I fear to alter the lettering, but I wrote to the binder to do so, if in time.3

Yours faithfully | Robt. Cooke

C. Darwin Esq


Cooke refers to William Sweetland Dallas, Charles Spence Bate, and copies of Dallas trans. 1869 (see letter to R. F. Cooke, 9 March [1869]).
For the list of journals that received review copies of Dallas trans. 1869, see the letter to R. F. Cooke, 23 [February 1869].
Cooke refers to the lettering of the spine of the book (see letter to R. F. Cooke, 9 March [1869], and letter from R. F. Cooke, 10 March 1869 and n. 2).


Book [Facts and arguments for Darwin] is being bound; it is probably too late to alter lettering.
