My dear Häckel
I have just received your grand present & thank you heartily. The book is magnificent. – I have just looked over all the Plates & they are wonderful. An artist gone mad could never have imagined such diversified and || & curious structures.
I congratulate you of the completion of so gigantic a work. You are a wonderful man to do so much.
Ever my dear Häckel
Yours very sincerely
