RWD had made up his mind to give up his objection to the Beagle voyage if JW did not take the same view. If Charles continues to want to go after further inquiry, will give him every assistance.

Charles is very grateful for your taking so much trouble & interest in his plans. I made up my mind to give up all objections, if you should not see it in the same view as I did.—
Charles has stated my objections quite fairly & fully—if he still continues in the same mind after further enquiry, I will give him all the assistance in my power.
Many thanks for your kindness— yours | affectionly | R W Darwinf1
