    Had hoped to call, but cannot do so comfortably, so will HBJ call on CD instead, for a consultation?

6. Queen Anne St | W.

Monday

My dear Dr. Bence Jones

I had hoped to have saved you trouble & called on you, but I find I hardly can with comfort to myself. Will you, therefore, be so good as to call here on me, that I may consult you & report progress—

Ever yours | Most truly obliged | Ch. Darwin

    The date is conjectured from the fact that it is the only date on which a payment was made to Jones on a Monday, coinciding with a visit by CD to London. CD was in London from 21 April to 1 May 1866 (Emma Darwin's diary (DAR 242)). CD's Classed account books (Down House MS) record a payment to Jones on 23 April 1866, a Monday.
