My dear Galton
Your few words of congratulation have given me sincerepleasure & I thank you cordially.—f2 I shd. have been still betterpleased, if you had told me how you were. I have enquiredwhenever I have had a chance of hearing, but did not hear sometwo months ago a very good account.f3
I trust & hope by your note that you are well again, but I knowthat over mental work takes long in recovery.—
With heartythanks & good wishes | Yours very sincerely | Charles Darwin
