    Discusses his account. Mentions reduction in rent due to agricultural conditions.


Down Farnborough Kent

Dec. 13.

My dear Sir

I am much obliged for your letter of the 9th, enclosing your account & informing me that you have placed a draft for £187’s 15’d 11 to my account at Mssr Robarts, Curtis & Co.—

I sincerely hope that Agricultural affairs will improve: fifteen per cent is a very heavy reduction; but we must hope for the best.

I am much obliged for your enquiries about my health, which still keeps & I fear will ever keep very indifferent.

Yours very faithfully | C. Darwin
J. Higgins Esqe
