To Asa Gray   9 February [1868]

Asks that Gray forward a parcel to J. T. Rothrock. Variation is selling well. Nearly all chapters written before Origin was published.

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-5851F

To John Murray   9 February [1868]

Summary

Heartily glad for JM’s sake at sale [of Variation]. Thinks JM right to publish a smaller second edition, for "the public will soon find out that it is dull" – though scientifically valuable. The index is excellent. CD is "always greedy" for presentation copies.
