To John Murray   30 [January 1860]

Summary

Suggests it would be easier and cheaper if he were given one or two pages in preface [to Journal of researches] for two or three important errors. Would like to take out one sentence if present preface is not stereotyped. Table of contents is shabby.

To John Murray   5 February [1860]

Summary

Thanks JM for highly flattering extract from German newspaper.

Asks JM to take steps to reserve to CD right of translation in Germany.

If there is to be a new title-page to Journal of researches, it would be a "splendid puff" to put in "7th thousand", or if Colburn’s 1500 can be added: "8th thousand".
