Closter, N. J. Oct. 20 - '73. My Dear Sir, Yours of 15th is rec'd. I have already enough subscribers to pay expenses of both projects. The "[Hep. Excia?]" will contain all our Carucica species and all others that of [Ab?] furnishes. You speak of Hornig Hepata from Mr. Curtis. He had some new things several of which I have named. I have now seen a collection of Hepits from [Esue E?] the names of which cannot be relied on!—Will keep a set of both "Hep. Excis" & [?] more for you and you may take this or not as you please. [?] Yours Austin

Your letter of the 24th ult came safe to hand but absence from Dublin prevented my replying sooner.
I have to thank you for your kindness in [waiting ?] to [hear?] about my two little [books?] and I dont know that I can say much about changes in them. All I will say is that I prefer the classification of [monocotyledons?] & [Dicotyledons?] I have given as I am certain [Bentham?] & [Hawkins?] will soon be given up. If [ask?] too [much?]
I would suggest that both classifications be given but leaving my books as nearly as possible intact and adding [Bentham?] & [Hawkins?] classification of Mono & Dicotyledons as an appendix.
You may correct two or three little blunders. (now being put right in the 2nd English edition.)
