18th September 1913

Dear Sir,

I am taking the liberty of sending you two copies of my "Epochs of Civilization." For some of the views expressed in it I am indebted to you, as you will see from the quotations I have made from your work. [[2]] I shall feel obliged if you be so kind as to make over one of the two copies I am sending to the editor of some influential Journal who will review it properly and send me a copy of the review. Messrs. Williams and Norgate will at present be agents for the sale of the book in England. Should it be well received, I am thinking of [[3]] bringing out an edition in England.

Yours truly | P.N. Bose1 [signature]


1. Bose, Pramatha Nath (1855-1934). Indian geologist and paleontologist.
