Has found EB's MS most interesting and valuable. Fully half the facts were new to him; will probably use some.
4 Chester Place | N.W.
I write one line to say that I have found your 4 sheets of M.S. most interesting & valuable.— I suppose fully half the facts were new to me. I shall probably use some, & hereafter shall have to make a few queries, about some names, which I cannot read with security.—
Yours truly obliged | Ch. Darwin
