My Dear Haeckel
I am very pleased to receive today your letter and the last plates of your „Wanderbilder”. It is quite splendid and I congratulate you on the completion of the series.
I am also glad to learn that your Phylogenetisches Museum is being built || and I trust the necessary funds will be forthcoming. I would like to send small contribution. If Dr Schultze will send me ten circulars I will see if I can interest any people here in the matter . He might also send me a note of the amount of some of the subscriptions that have been received in this country, and || let me know if any of your pupils here have taken an interest in the matter.
I am going to Boston U.S.A. on the 9 August to deliver an address on the Ocean at the Zoological Congress. Next year I am again going to the East for six or eight months. I have been away from home a good deal lately. In June I hoped to visit || Jena, and call for you in a motor, but the motor broke down, en route!!
Next year I hope to finish my lake survey Reports, five volumes. Then I will likely take to the sea again.
We are all very well. My children are getting very big. Two of them go to America with me. Lady Murray joins me in the best remembrances to you and Mrs Haeckel.
