From J. V. Carus   24 June 1881

Summary

Koch [of Schweizerbart, publisher of CD’s works in Germany and also publisher of Kosmos] has asked JVC to translate Earthworms and send one chapter of it to Kosmos for advance separate publication. He thinks a chapter on the practical work of the earthworms would be most interesting to the general reader.

To J. V. Carus   29 June 1881

Summary

CD will soon finish corrections [of Earthworms] for printer, and then clean sheets will be sent to JVC for translation of the book and to Ernst Krause. The subject has been a "hobby-horse" with CD, and he has perhaps treated it in foolish detail. Has told Krause he does not think any part of the MS suitable for Kosmos, but Krause must decide.
