Darwin Correspondence Project

To August Müller Beeck   31 July [1876]

Down, | Beckenham, Kent. | (Railway Station | Orpington. S.E.R.)

July 31st

Dear Sir

I did think your request unreasonable, as I have to give from 50 to 100 copies of all my books to those who aid me.—1

I attributed your request to a hasty impulse, & I hope that you will not think at all more about it.

With good wishes | Yours faithfully | Ch. Darwin
