    Lord Derby was pleased by CD's warm and genuine expression of approval [of his support of Vivisection Bill? see 9933].


Knowsley, | Prescot.

22 Decr/75

Dear Mr Darwin

Though you tell me not to answer your most kind note I cannot help disobeying you: Your warm & genuine expresssions of approval have given Ld Derby more pleasure than any other compliment he has received, & you must forgive me for saying so.—

We made two short visits to Keston last month, but I was never able to find time to get as far as Down.

We are more & more pleased with Keston each time we go there.

Will you remember me kindly to Mrs Darwin & believe me | Yrs very sincerely M C Derby
