To R. F. Cooke   30 October 1871

Summary

Has completed corrections for Origin [6th ed.], but has received no proofs. Hopes it will be published without delay.

Has been reflecting on Murray’s suggestion to stereotype the Origin. Sees advantage in that it will make him stop additions and changes in style. Inquires whether each separate sheet is stereotyped and can be altered.

Asks whether any copies of C. Wright’s pamphlet have been sold.
