To Henrietta Emma Darwin 26 July 
– July 26th My dear Etty.—
You are a very good girl to wish for remaining slips of present chapter, but they are enormously altered & 10 folio pages of MS added, & the slips themselves have had to be cut into pieces & rearranged, so I will not send them.1
But for the future I shall be only too glad for you to see the slips, as well as Revises.— I will either keep, according to quantity finished, the whole of present chapter till your return, or send part to you.—
All your remarks, criticisms doubts & corrections are excellent, excellent, excellent
Yours affectly. | C. D.
Prefers not to send her proof-slips of the present chapter [of Variation], which has been enormously altered, but will be glad to have her see slips and revises in future.
