My dear Haeckel
I am delighted to hear that you are coming. Come here a few days before the festivities. Can you be here on the 13th (Sunday) I will expect you to declair || the Marine station open on the 15th instant.
You will be all the better of the trip. Best remembrances to Mrs Haeckel. Bring your boy or girl with you if you like.
You will get some money before you leave if you have || not got it already.
We can not pay the lithographing of the tenth series (91‒100) till you send us proofs of all the plates which we do not seem yet to have.
Yours very truly
