Has sent G. B. Sowerby Jr some skeleton plates [for vol. 1 of Living Cirripedia] which the Council [of the Ray Society] may also wish to see, along with GBS’s finished drawings. He reminds EL that he has not heard about colour for the plates and adds he has not been told what type should be used; gives estimated lengths of part 1 in different sizes of type (part 2 will be fully twice the size of this). Hopes if the Council does not publish part 1 in 1851 it will publish all in 1852.
