Dear Sir

I am obliged for your two notes & am glad to hear that your paper went off successfully without bitter opposition.— I am hardly ever able to go out anywhere.— Pray excuse brevity, as I am far from well today & overwhelmed with things which must be done.

Dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | Ch. Darwin
