To Louis Rérolle   2 August [1869]

Summary

Gives the definition of ‘distal’ and explains what ‘thrips’ are. Suggests that LR uses his descretion in his translation of Orchids about certain descriptive phrases such as ‘saddle-formed’, but suggests he use them each at least once.

Declines offer to look over LR’s translation.
