    Plans to meet CD in town.


Hillfield | Hampstead | NW

My dear Darwin

Many thanks for your note. I am truly sorry to hear you are so poorly.

I scarcely hoped to see you, and am very glad to be able to do so. I will certainly come on Friday about 1—and shall rejoice to see Er<as>mus at same time.

Many thanks for your <invite> to Down, but it is impossible for me to accept it—nor do I think it wd be anything but a teaze to you if I did.

Had I not been able to get a glimpse of you in Town, I might have tried to run down for a few hours.

Ever my dear Darwin | Yours W D Fox
