What I said in my last note was exactly true: I felt your mannertowards myself & family extraordinarily kind, & I have not often in mylife been more gratified.—f3 Walking round the museum, afterconversing with you, tired me a good deal, for I am knocked up withincredible ease; but I was quite right again next morning.f4 Ishall always look back with great satisfaction to my last visit (as itwill probably prove) to Cambridge.— I hope that you will feelstrong, so as to enjoy to a certain extent your visit to your oldhome.—f5
With the most sincere respect, believe me | Yours truly obliged | CharlesDarwin
