Augt. 9 1872

My dear Sir

By all means write out to Messr. Appletons & say for £50, they shall be supplied with stereotypes & Electros.1

I have been 3 times to the Heliotype Compy, but without finding any one there to explain to me their estimate.2

I cant help thinking, we misunderstand the matter that instead of impressions they mean negatives or plates but we shall see

Yrs faithfully | Robt. Cooke

C. Darwin Esq
