Asks that A. d'Orbigny's geological map of S. America be sent to him with a card of the Society's evening meetings.
Down Bromley | Kent
The Geological map of S. America was not sent me with D'Orbigny's work— would you please send it me and a card of the Evening meetings —either by Post, or if there are any parcels waiting for me, by “Down Coach”, from Bolt-in-Tun Fleet St.—
Yours faithfully | C. Darwin
