My dear Sir

I have duplicate copies of some Books & others useless to me, some of which may be worth accepting by the Linn. Soc;2 so I will send them by Carrier on Thursday morning.—

Will you kindly have ready for Carrier any parts of Linn. Transact. due to me.— Also kindly oblige me by sending order on next page for Phil: Transact.3 & have them packed in same parcel with Linn. Transact.—

My dear sir | Yours very faithfully | Ch. Darwin
