Glad WDF will visit him in Shrewsbury.
Hope visited CD; he and T. C. Eyton want CD to join them on an entomological trip to N. Wales; can WDF come?
William Yarrell has discovered a new wild swan in England; CD has had bad specimen of it stuffed for WDF.
Adds brief news of friends.
My dear Fox,
I write these few lines to give you an outline of my plans, to apologise for not having written long enough ago, & lastly to say how very glad I am to hear that my plan of your paying me a visit in Shrewsbury, meets with your approbation.— I shall go up to Town on Friday, or Saturday, stay a few days there, & then on Shrewsbury: from whence I will again write to you.—
Of Course you have heard of the new species of wild Swan, discovered in England, by
I have had a letter from old Simpson, & he begs to kindly remembered to you: I am packing up Pulleins birds: I have got for you a dusky Grebe.
I will write again when I have more time. I only send this scrawl that you may know how very happy I am at the thoughts of seeing you at Shrewsbury.— | Dear old Fox | Yours | C. Darwin
