May 20th [1850]

My dear Forchhammer.

I ought to have written sooner to have thanked you very sincerely for your letter of the 27th of April: it told me quite fully and most clearly all that I wanted to know of your Geology. Prof. Steenstrups specimens which I owe first to your kindness have been of great use and interest to me: I have now described 33 fossil Pedunculated Cirripedes, and they are in Mr Sowerby’s *) hands to make drawings of.

With my very sincere thanks

Believe me

yours very truly
