Regrets he cannot get to Down.
Hillfield | Hampstead
My dear Darwin
I wish very much I could have run over to Down while here, but it is quite hopeless for me to think of doing so. I return home on Saturday, and am not equal to any extra exertion I can help, tho I <am> very comfortably well, as long as I am quite idle, as my pain tho constant, is very bearable.
I have not time to enter into your letter today, but will do so ere long.
I should much have enjoyed seeing you, and M
Yours always | W D Fox
