The first 8 letters I received from Darwin -(while in the Malay
NB. The Mss. of my Paper sent to Darwin and printed in the Journal of the Linnean [sic] Society, was not returned to me, and seems to be lost. The proofs with this Mss. were perhaps sent to Sir Charles Lyell, or to the Secretary of the Linn. Soc.& may some day be found. It was written on thin foreign note paper,
[signed] Alfred R. Wallace
