Thanks for photographs [of German scientists].

My dear Sir
I write merely to say that I received safely this morning the photographs.
I thank you cordially for all the trouble you have taken. I value them much & all the more as I did not know that some of these distinguished men had ever taken any part in the discussion on the modification of species.
Believe me my dear Sir | yours truly obliged | Ch. Darwin
