Down Farnborough Kent

March 17th

My dear Sir

I write a line merely to thank you for your very complete information regarding Mr Hanley's residence. I will certainly visit him when next I stay in London; but London unfortunately always disagrees with my health. I enclose with many thanks stamps (which I hope will not be inconvenient) for Eling's specimen.—

Yours very sincerely | C. Darwin
