Sends a bottle containing fish which Lord Arthur Russell had promised to send.
Holwood | Beckenham
Dear Mr. Darwin
I send you a bottle containing some fish from Ld. Arthur Russell; he says you will understand all about it; & that he had promised to send the parcel. I had hoped to bring it myself, but I must postpone my visit till another day but will not delay to forward this precious bottle—
Believe me | Yrs very sincerely | M C Derby
