Sends parcel of specimens for R. W. Bunsen.
Down Farnborough | Kent
With this note, I send the parcel for Prof Bunsen, which you said you would be so good as to take to him.f2 It has turned out rather larger than I anticipated, but I thought it best to send a pretty good suite of specimens.—f3 I can hardly express how sorry I was to hear, upon my return home, that you had had the great trouble of coming here. I only hope that you had some other call to this neighbourhood.— I most sincerely regret that I was not at home to have had the pleasure of receiving you.—
Pray believe me | Yours very faithfully | C. Darwin
To | Dr H. Kolbe.
