Transcription information





Sept[ember] 19th 1878

Dear Sir,

I take the liberty to send you enclosed my scientific papers in order to give you a small sign of my high consideration for your scientific events.

The record exemplar and the volume entitled Natur der [illeg.] is destined for the Library of the British Association. Will you be so kind to offer it to the President elected for the next year.

I intended at first to send my work to the Executive Committee of the Association for this year in Dublin in order to return in this way my thanks to the Committee for the kind invitation forwarded to me some months ago. But it was impossible for me to finish my work before the opening of the Association so that I am obliged to read it now after the closing of the session.

I remain dear sir, your | Very respectfully | Your | F Füller [signature

PS The packet including the book will be read by my bookseller Stackermann
