Sir

I should be very much obliged if you wd send me any printed document by which I cd learn something about the course of studies at King's College for the sake of one of my sons.

I wish for instance to know whether the students are allowed any choice in their particular lines of study, & whether they are compelled to reside in the College.

I should therefore be much obliged if you cd send me any paper that wd give me such information.

I beg leave to remain Sir | your obedient servant. | Ch. Darwin
