My dear Wallace

I hear you are to review my book in Academy;2 so I have thought it w[oul]d. save you trouble to have a copy as soon as possible.— I have asked Mr. Murray to get Vol. I bound & sent to you. Vol. II. will be delayed 10 or 14 days by Index: otherwise thank all the powers it is completed. Do not swear at me more than you can help.—

Ever yours | C. Darwin [signature]
