Asks GHD to decipher a letter [in German] he has received with a book: The Bible in science.
Enjoyed his stay in Cambridge extremely.
My dear George
You are a dead hand at decyphering: will you try & make out something of enclosed letter.— Frank has utterly failed. The bothering man has sent me a German book on ``The Bible & Science''.—
I enjoyed my stay at Cambridge extremely—more than anything for a very long time.—
Your affect Father | C. Darwin
- f1 12697.f1The date is conjectured from CD's letter to Francis Darwin, 11 August , and the description of a trip to Cambridge in Emma Darwin (1904) 2: 240, as CD has merely written the date as ``23
d''. However, ``Aug'' has been written before this, and ``80'' after, in different ink. The handwriting in which these amendations were made is believed to be George Darwin's.
