Dear Blyth

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
