    Discusses his account. Mentions death of his father and his own inheritance.


Down Farnborough | Kent

Dec. 6

My dear Sir

I beg to thank you for your note informing me that you have placed to my account at Robart £197..—

Although you do not allude to the great loss we have experienced in the death of my Father, I am well assured, from what I have heard you say, that you will sympathise with us. A man with more entire kindness of heart could not, I am certain, exist. He always expressed much respect & interest for you.—

I believe Mr Salt wrote to you about Rents &c up to the day of the death; but I do not whether he communicated to me that Sutterton Fen is left to me, so that I shall receive all rent due after Nov. 13th ult.—

Believe me | My dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | C. R Darwin.
To | J. Higgins Esqr
